Andrew Mitchell demands UK Government provides answers about Britain’s role in Saudi military operations in Yemen

27th November 2017

The British Army is secretly training Saudi Arabian troops to fight in Yemen, where the country has been accused of committing crimes against humanity. Codenamed Operation Crossways, it was never supposed to be made public but was exposed after photographs were made publicly available on social media.

Andrew Mitchell said: ‘The UK has been shamefully complicit in Saudi’s role in Yemen, which has clearly included breaches of the Geneva Convention…I have no doubt Parliament will require an explanation of this training mission in view of the high level of concern about the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Yemen.’
