(Save the Children) – Kirsty McNeill, Director of Policy, Advocacy and Campaigns at Save the Children, said: “We welcome the Committee’s report which says the UK should suspend arms exports to Saudi Arabia and back an international inquiry to establish the facts around alleged violations of international law in Yemen. We must remember that the Yemen crisis is first and foremost a children’s crisis. The UN says thousands of Yemeni children have been killed and maimed, and their schools and hospitals attacked. Meanwhile, insecurity and a previous de-facto blockade have prevented vital food, fuel and medical supplies from reaching the families who desperately need them. Now, one in every three Yemeni children under five – approximately 1.3 million – is suffering from acute malnutrition and goes to bed hungry every night. The ongoing conflict has prevented aid agencies like ours from operating freely on the ground, limiting access to lifesaving aid and the aid workers needed to deliver it.”
