“The UK prides itself on being a world leader on responding to humanitarian crises, yet its reluctance to publicly condemn the human cost of conflict in Yemen gives the impression that diplomatic relations and arms sales trump the lives of Yemen’s children... The UK government must not stand by while children are being bombed; it must demand that civilian lives and civilian facilities like hospitals are protected...” -The Guardian
