Bombing Yemen

News in Brief

It is “extremely likely” that the Saudi air force deployed UK-supplied Tornado fighter-bombers” to bomb “scores of Yemeni civilians” last autumn, according to an Amnesty International report issued at the end of August.
The Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) has documented Britain’s role in supplying and maintaining a range of military aircraft for the Saudi Arabian air force, including Tornado and Typhoon fighter-bombers, together with associated support services, equipment, weapons, ammunition and electronic warfare systems.
Amnesty believes that “hundreds - possibly thousands - of civilians” were killed in last year’s joint Saudi-Yemeni bombing.
