Saudi Arabia’s six year war with Yemen has created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis (UN). Hundreds of thousands have been killed and 1.71 million children are internally displaced. The conflict has devastated the health care system, with 49 per cent of health facilities not functioning.
The UK Government is contributing to this crisis. Campaign against Arms Trade (CAAT) claim the UK has sold Saudi Arabia £5.4bn worth of arms since the Yemen war began.
Last week the US reported it will freeze arms sales to Saudi Arabia. According to CAAT this could set a vital precedent and could help to force action from the UK and the other arms-dealing governments.
