Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia has led an airstrike campaign in Yemen that frequently targets residential neighborhoods and civil infrastructure, resulting in thousands of civilian deaths.
The U.S. State Department recently approved a sale of$1.29 billion worth of munitions to Saudi Arabia to restock its air force, despite clear evidence of human rights and laws-of-war violations by Saudi-led coalition forces.
By refusing to investigate the Saudi government’s violations of international humanitarian law and providing additionalarms to Saudi Arabia, the United States would be complicit in these violations. But with your help, we can stop this weapons sale.
