New evidence Saudi-led coalition is using banned cluster bombs in Yemen – HRW

1 June 2015

The Saudi-led coalition is continuing to use banned cluster bombs in Yemen. That’s according to new evidence published by Human Rights Watch.

The weapons are prohibited by a 2008 treaty adopted by 116 countries – however Saudi Arabia is not among them.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

Human Rights Watch (HRW) published new evidence yesterday accusing Saudi coalition warplanes of using internationally outlawed cluster bombs against innocent civilians.

The New York-based organisation visited the Saada province in northern Yemen last month to compile its report. HRW says that it managed to document the use of three types of cluster munitions in Yemen.

“The Saudi-led coalition and other warring parties in Yemen need to recognise that using banned cluster munitions is very likely to harm civilians,” said HRW senior emergencies researcher Ole Solvang.

These weapons can’t distinguish military targets from civilians and their unexploded submunitions threaten civilians, especially children, even long after the fighting,” he added.

HRW has also urged nations backing the Saudis, such as the US, to denounce the use of the illegal munitions.

Saudi Arabia and its allies have not signed up to the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions, which prohibits their use.

This is not the first time HRW has highlighted the Saudi-led coalition’s use of cluster bombs. It accuses the US of supplying the munitions used to bomb Houthi positions.

HOW THE U.S. CAN IMPROVE ITS MIDEAST AGENDA “Historically, America has treated [Saudi Arabia] (and indeed the wider region) as a bucket of oil and a place to sell arms. And in the years since 9/11, Washington has also forged intelligence ties with Middle Eastern countries that it counts as allies in the war against Islamic extremism. But in the wake of the Arab Spring, the West has consistently failed to recognize the crisis of legitimacy faced by Middle Eastern governments. Getting this right could yield an extraordinary opportunity for regional stability and commerce, but it requires a leap of faith as well as the adoption of historical sensitivity.” [HuffPost]

The US-backed war against Yemen has left some 20 million people—nearly 80 percent of the country’s population—facing a humanitarian disaster, without access to adequate food, water and medical care, the United Nations top aid official informed member nations of the UN Security Council this week: here.
