A new confidential UN report says after nearly two-and-a-half years of military campaign in Yemen, the Saudi-led coalition is ‘no closer’ to achieving its objective.
The report suggests the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen is failing.
Saudi Arabia and its partners have been carrying out air strikes against the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, in one of the world’s poorest countries.
But despite the coalition’s considerable military power, it has not succeeded in its mission.
The report says the campaign has led to a further fragmentation of Yemen’s political landscape.
It accuses all parties of continuing to violate international human rights laws, saying government forces, Houthi rebels, fighters loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and the UAE are detaining people illegally.
So, how to stop this conflict?
