Act to stop Yemen slaughter, Corbyn tells May

Tuesday 21st November 2017

JEREMY CORBYN wrote to the Prime Minister yesterday demanding she act to end the war in Yemen as a million people stand on the brink of famine.

The Labour leader condemned the government for its role in supporting the Saudi-led invasion coalition and urged Theresa May to suspend arms sales to Riyadh and call for “an immediate ceasefire” through the UN.

Britain has licensed more than £3.3 billion in arms to Saudi Arabia since its bombing campaign against Yemen began in March 2015.

Mr Corbyn wrote: “At least 10,000 people have been killed since the conflict started in 2014 and seven million people are in extreme hunger.

“Food shortages and the cholera outbreak are a direct result of the continuing blockade of Yemen by the US and UK-backed Saudi-led coalition.”

He called for immediate steps to end the suffering of the Yemeni people and for a peaceful, negotiated solution.

Former international development secretary Andrew Mitchell branded Britain “dangerously complicit” yesterday in promoting a famine in Yemen through its support for Saudi Arabia.

Speaking in the Commons he said: “Are we not on the brink of witnessing in Yemen a totally preventable, massive humanitarian catastrophe, the likes of which we have not seen in decades?”

As a US-backed Saudi tightening of the blockade against the impoverished and war-ravaged country of Yemen enters its third week, the International Committee of the Red Cross has reported that pumping stations and sanitation facilities in both the Yemeni capital of Sana’a and the south-central city of Bayda have run out of fuel, leaving 2.5 million in crowded urban areas without access to clean water: here.
