Yemen: Fanning the flames of the Yemen conflict: Joint Statement

, Index number: MDE 31/3686/2016

As Yemenis mark one year since the Saudi Arabia-led coalition began military operations in Yemen, and as civilian suffering caused by the warring parties grows in scale and severity, we, the eight undersigned organizations call on all governments to: cease the supply of any weapons, munitions, and related military equipment to parties to the conflict in Yemen; support a credible, independent, international mechanism to investigate allegations of serious violations of international humanitarian and human rights law committed in Yemen with a view to ensuring that victims of violations are provided redress, and those suspected of crimes are brought to justice in fair trials.
