"The UN Panel of Experts on Yemen says it’s likely war crimes are being committed with US weapons and supervision, and yet Washington is taking zero actions in response," Murphy said. "How can Congress continue to fund this war in the face of US-supported war crimes?"
Murphy was commenting on a report mandated by the United Nations that found that the conflict in Yemen was violating international law.
"There is simply no way our participation in this cataclysm of civilian deaths is making our country more safer. The world is seeing what we are doing in Yemen… I hope this report is a huge wake up call for Congress and the administration," he said.
According to the report, the Group of Regional and International Eminent Experts on Yemen strongly suggest that parties to the armed conflict in Yemen have violated and continue to violate international law, with the Saudi-led coalition responsible for a majority of documented civilian casualties.
