The coalition war on Yemen is an illegal:A political commentator
The Saudi Arabian-led war on Yemen is illegal from every aspect of international law, says a political commentator.
“This is an illegal war… a grotesque violation of all humanitarian norms, what the Saudi-led coalition is doing in Yemen is outrageous,” Colin Cavell, a former lecturer at the University of Bahrain, told Press TV on Tuesday.
He said the US-backed Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen did not have the mandate of the United Nations, but also it did not even have the official approval of the Congress of the United States — which itself is aiding the coalition in the war on Yemen.
In March 2015, the US backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
