Int’l organization warns Britain against continuing to export arms to Saudi Arabia

LONDON, Feb. 22 (YPA) – Oxfam International Organization in Britain has warned against continuing to sell British weapons to the Saudi-led coalition in its war against Yemen.

Oxfam accused the British government of prolonging the Yemeni war by licensing the sale of fuel supply equipment in the air, which it feared that the Saudis would use in managing air strikes that do not discriminate on Yemen.

Britain licensed the sale of this technology to Saudi Arabia in the summer of 2020 when restrictions on issuing licenses for the sale of military equipment were lifted, in addition to other military sales worth 1.4 billion pounds.
