U.S. Proposes New $650 Million Missile Sale to Saudi Arabia, Despite Yemen War Crimes

HeadlineNov 05, 2021

Antiwar advocates are condemning the Biden administration for proposing a new $650 million missile sale to Saudi Arabia, warning the move will only trigger more death and suffering in Yemen. If approved by Congress, this would be the first major military sale to Saudi Arabia since President Biden took office and vowed the U.S. would end support for “offensive operations.” In response, CodePink tweeted, “Meanwhile, one Yemeni child continues to die every 10 minutes as a result of the humanitarian crisis caused by the Saudi-led war on Yemen.”
