The United States has come under heavy criticism for supporting Saudi Arabia in its war on Yemen despite being aware that the bombing campaign amounts to human rights violations.

Saudi Arabia is widely condemned for its ongoing human rights abuses and war crimes against Yemenis, while both the US and the UK are key players in the onslaught.

The weapons that kill Yemeni children are provided by the US. British weapons and military experts are also at the service of Saudi Arabia for killing Yemeni civilians. Saudi Arabia is the richest country in the Middle East and is killing civilians in Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East.

The United Nations Security Council should consider creating an international commission of inquiry to investigate human rights abuses in Yemen, a panel of UN experts says. However, it seems that the UN has again failed to bring peace to civilians under attack and to punish the aggressors.
