Saudi-led coalition hides information about illegal airstrikes on Yemen: HRW

 

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has lashed out at the Saudi-led coalition for its refusal to provide information on its role in the massive unlawful airstrikes against Yemen in an attempt to avoid international legal liability.

According to a Friday report by HRW, the current and former members of the coalition have refused to reply to the rights group’s correspondence in 2017, which urged them to release the results of their investigations into the unlawful airstrikes in Yemen, despite the fact that they are legally bound to do so under the international law.

“No coalition member can claim clean hands in Yemen until all its members explain their role in scores of documented unlawful attacks,” said HRW Middle East Director Sarah Leah Whitson. 

The report provided detailed witness account of several unlawful airstrikes by the coalition which killed and wounded a massive number of civilians.
