Joint Statement: European Assistance to the US lethal drone programme
19 NGOs urge European States to refrain from assisting in US drone strikes that may violate international law and to implement safeguards. Members of the European Forum on Armed Drones (EFAD) and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are deeply concerned by the secretive provision of assistance by European States to the United States’ (US) lethal drone operations, particularly in light of a dramatic expansion in US drone strikes and reports that President Trump has dismantled already inadequate Obama-era restrictions on use of force meant to minimize civilian casualties and violations of international human rights and humanitarian law.
