British profit from bombing civilians in Yemen

"The Saudi-led coalition of nine Sunni states began its attacks on Houthi-controlled areas of neighbouring Yemen in March last year. The airstrike campaign and naval blockade has so far claimed the lives of over 6,000 civilians. Bombing raids on schools, medical facilities, mosques and markets, according to the UN, have violated international humanitarian laws, with regions of Yemen facing acute levels of famine." "The Saudi-led operation claims to have targeted only Houthi military targets. However the UN report documents multiple attacks on civilian populations."
