Rasa - The European Union should take concrete action to put an end to Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against Yemen, says an academic, adding that condemnation alone cannot save the lives of Yemeni people.

RNA - The comments came after the European Parliament called for imposing an arms embargo on Saudi Arabia because of its deadly war on Yemen.


“The solution has to be direct action against the governments backing the Saudi invasion. The UK and the US is directly involved in the bombing campaign, we have bombs made in the US falling on children in Yemen, we have bombs made in France and weapons made in Britain being used and as this goes on it is a hypocrisy for the EU to really take these postures I think. They need to be much more effective and we need to be aware that these kind of gestures have happened many times before,” Kenneth Fero, lecturer at Coventry University said in an interview on Friday.


Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s popular Ansarullah movement.


The US and the UK back the Saudi-led alliance in its war on Yemen which has killed more than 15,000 people, providing it with various types of support, including bombing coordinates, logistical provisions, and aerial refueling.
