The Saudi led Arab Alliance has used US bombs in the bloodiest attacks in Yemen on the local citizens including women and children, citing the Saudi bombing of Arhab region east of the Yemeni capital Sana’a, said the organization in a report posted on their website on Thursday.
“I visited the site of the raid with friends and relatives of the victims, amid the wreckage, we found pieces of US-made ammunition bearing Raytheon marks in October 2015, and this was the 23rd time that Human Rights Watch identified the remains of the American Weapons at the site of an attack carried illegally and fourth time we found weapons made by Raytheon”, said the report.
“The digging of a well in a small village in Yemen was nearly at the level of completion in September 2016, before it was bombed by Saudi led coalition” the organization said in its report.
The organization noted that the Trump administration now seems ready to ratify a deal to sell more arms to Saudi Arabia, including Raytheon bombs worth $ 400 million.
The human rights watch states that the ongoing US support including arms sales to the Saudi military campaign in Yemen, may make the US government a partner in the coalition’s violations of the laws of war and may hold US officials responsible for war crimes as per international law experts and congress members.
The united states is selling arms to Saudi Arabia from many years and it is using that to kill the innocent people of Yemen and the brutal and criminal activities are attached to the actions of Saudi Arabia in Yemen and the important proof for the war crimes of Saudi Arabia in Yemen are abundant but the most prominent amongst these are the two deadliest attacks which were carried on the civilians in crowded market and the attack on the funeral hall full of innocent civilians, both of which are evident war crimes, Human Rights Watch added.
“Last month helicopter of coalition attacked the boat carrying the Somali migrants fleeing Yemen in search for safety and at night they were raided and at least 3 people were killed and 27 wounded”, said it further.
The US state Department has approved a license to sell and maintain military helicopters to Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Jordan all of which are the members of the alliance. The pentagon has announced that Boeing has won a 3.2billion dollars contract to sell more military helicopters to Saudi Arabia.
“Some US legislators are trying to urge Trump administration to limit arms sales to Saudi Arabia, demanding more transparency on how to use US resources”, revealed the report.
