The US and Saudi Arabia have reportedly intensified negotiations over arms deals potentially worth tens of billions of dollars. The purported agreement looks to go beyond or make major shifts from the Obama administration. Washington and Riyadh have been engaged in talks over multi-billion arms deals.
Human Rights Watch said they have counted a total of 81 attacks from the Saudi-led coalition which violate the laws of war, some likely amounting to war crimes, including attacks on hospitals, markets, schools and religious centers.
The current State Department website states that Saudi Arabia’s human rights record have “remained poor” and it is the innocent men and women and children of Yemen that continue to suffer.
