UK: Stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia - Sign the petition

In March 2015, an international coalition led by Saudi Arabia – including the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Morocco, Jordan and Sudan – launched air strikes against the Huthi armed group in Yemen.

Since then, the conflict has spread and fighting has engulfed the entire country.

On top of relentless attacks by coalition forces from the air, a battle between rival groups is raging on the ground. Yet this conflict has barely made the headlines.

Evidence of UK-made bomb

We have evidence of a British-made bomb which was used to destroy a Yemeni ceramics factory – a civilian building.

The attack on the factory in the Sana’a governorate killed one person and violates international humanitarian law.

‘This was depressingly predictable. Amnesty has repeatedly warned that UK-made weapons were likely to end up causing civilian casualties in Yemen, but those warnings have been recklessly ignored.’
