Amnesty slams arming terrorists in Yemen

Amnesty slams arming terrorists in Yemen
World  - The Amnesty International in a statement has denounced the move by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to send arms to those in Yemen who are involved in committing war crimes in the country.


According to Arab media ' Al-Quds Al-Arabi', in its statement released on Tuesday night, the Amnesty International said Emirati forces acquired billions of dollars worth of Western arms to send them to the criminals involved in the Yemeni war.

The presence of these hostile forces is regarded as a predicament for the civilians in the country, the statement read.

This is while millions of others are on the verge of hunger, it added.

Earlier, US media CNN announced that Saudi Arabia and its allies have transferred American arms to Al-Qaeda, Salafi militias and other groups present in the Yemeni war.

Meantime, Mohammad Al-Houthi President of the Yemen's Revolutionary Committee has called for taking practical steps and decisions to stop US support for the Saudi-led coalition against Yemen as the real roadmap for supporting peace in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
