Saudi-led coalition dismisses UN report on war crimes

RIYADH: A Saudi-led coalition battling in Yemen on Wednesday dismissed as inaccurate a report by UN investigators that highlighted possible war crimes in the conflict-torn country including deadly air strikes by the alliance. “We affirm the inaccuracies in the report and its nonneutrality,” the coalition said in a statement released by the official Saudi Press Agency. “The report did not mention Iran’s role in the continuation of the war … and its continued support for the Houthi” militias

The coalition added that it would later provide a “comprehensive and detailed legal response” to the report. In their first report released on Tuesday, a team of UN-mandated investigators said all parties in Yemen’s bloody confl ict have committed a “substantial number of violations of international humanitarian law”.
