Joint statement on attack in Yemen (2)

Parties that are involved in the conflict must be held accountable

Together for Yemen

ZOA condemns the horrific coalition airstrike on a bus that was transporting schoolchildren in Yemen the 10th of August. Together with other international non-government organizations ZOA calls for an immediate investigation into yesterday’s attacks by an independent panel of UN experts and support from the UN Security Council.

The bombing follows an unacceptable trend of attacks (click here) on civilians and civilian infrastructure by parties to Yemen’s conflict. The killings of dozens of children has escalated the depravity of a war creating untold loss and destruction for people in Yemen.

Parties that are involved in the conflict must be held to account for actions that violate International Humanitarian Law and continue to fuel a preventable crisis.
