"The Cluster Munitions Coalition (CMC) strongly condemns the use of cluster munitions in Yemen and urges Saudi Arabia and all members of the coalition to immediately halt the use," Firoz Ali Alizada said, calling on all parties to the Convention, to which Saudi Arabia is not party, to "publicly condemn the continued use of this indiscriminate weapons in Yemen."
According to the CMC spokesman, the Saudi-led coalition has been using cluster munitions in Yemen since April 2015. Using cluster munitions goes against the Convention on Cluster Munitions and the principles established by the International Humanitarian Law.
In March 2015, the Saudi-led international coalition started carrying out airstrikes against Houthi positions at Hadi’s request.
Since the coalition launched its campaign, several rights groups have documented its use of banned cluster munition in several airstrikes, claiming that the coalition has used cluster munitions in Yemen’s civilian-populated areas, wounding and killing civilians.
