UN Rights Council neglects duty to probe atrocities in Yemen

 

The UN Human Rights Office has lashed out at the global body’s Human Rights Council for neglecting its responsibility with regard to launching an investigation into the massive rights violations in Yemen.

In a Tuesday report, the UN Human Rights Office urged the Human Rights Council to probe into atrocities committed during what it described as an "entirely man-made catastrophe" in its upcoming meeting this month.

Since March 2015, Yemen has been under heavy airstrikes by Saudi warplanes as part of a brutal war against the Arabian Peninsula country.

The Saudi-led coalition has also imposed a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen. There are no commercial flights and less than a dozen humanitarian flights are permitted to land in Sana’a and Aden each week.
