The UN Human Rights Council must address abuses against civilians in the Yemen conflict

Index Number: MDE 31/2357/2015

In this written statement to the 30th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Amnesty International presents its concerns and recommendations on the human rights situation in Yemen.
Through field research in Yemen in May, June and July 2015, Amnesty International has gathered evidence that all parties to the conflict have committed violations of international humanitarian law. After examining over 60 incidents of air strikes and ground attacks in Ta’iz, Sana’a, Aden and Sa’da the organization has concluded that the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, the Huthi armed group and its allies, and the anti-Huthi armed groups and their allies have been responsible for killing and injuring hundreds of civilians not involved in the conflict, in disproportionate and indiscriminate ground and air attacks that constitute war crimes.
