Coronavirus cannot stop Britain’s war in Yemen | Daily Maverick

The Royal Air Force and BAE Systems from Great Britain are continuing to support the fight against Yemen despite the coronavirus. This has also continued despite concern from the United Nations, who believe there could be unnecessary loss of human life and suffering. Officials have been stating that the virus could destroy over 50% of the remaining healthcare system still in place in Yemen. The Yemen Data Project reported that they were hit with 106 airstrikes last week from the Saudi-led coalition. When BAE was questioned on their involvement, the only comment they would give was “We provide defense equipment, training and support under government to government agreements between the UK and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.‎”
