After meeting with Prince Mohamad Bin Salman Al Saud, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mr. Guterres’ office released an statement that “These funds cover almost one-third of the $2.96 billion required to implement the 2018 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan, which will enable the United Nations and its partners to help alleviate the suffering of millions of vulnerable people across Yemen”

UN’s new report

On Tuesday, the United Nations released a report blaming All sides in Yemen’s bloody conflict. A team of UN-mandated investigators said in a report that All sides in Yemen’s bloody conflict may have committed war crimes involving deadly air strikes, rampant sexual violence, and the recruitment of child soldiers.

“we have reasonable grounds to believe that the parties to the armed conflict in Yemen have committed a substantial number of violations of international humanitarian law” the report added.

Numerous human rights groups have petitioned against the US interference in Yemen war, but the US assists Saudi Arabia and the UAE in “conducting aerial bombings in Yemen” and provides “midair refueling services” for their warplanes. According to the human rights groups’ report, Washington has sold more than $90bn of military equipment to Riyadh between 2010 and 2015.
