Al-Jazeera released additional deatails about a EU-wide arms embargo against Saudi Arabia in response to the Gulf state’s heavy bombing campaign in Yemen.

According to the decision, any EU member state that signs a military and weapon sale agreement with the Saudi government will be sanctioned by other members of the EU.

The European Parliament at their meeting in Strasbourg, France has approvied an arms embargo on Saudi Arabia to protest against the country’s actions in Yemen.

The decision came amid the Human Rights Watch report about a death of 39 civilians, including 26 children, as a result of the Saudi-led coalition air strikes during last two months.

The Human Rights Watch has also requested the UN human Rights Council to include the Saudi-led coalition into the annual list of child rights violators.

The EU is the second-largest weapon exporter after the US in the world.

        I see that the Spanish Zionist lovers are threatening 700 mayors of with prosecution Catalonia for promoting a democratic referendum asking for independence :)
        The EU elites mask of egalitarianism is rapidly slipping to expose their Judaeo Marxist malevolence. They are in a blind panic.

      The Brits have an arms deal with ‘the Shriners’ too. But they’re not technically IN the EU are they?

      • FlorianGeyer

        They are bound by their rules.

        Brexit still hasn’t happened in any shape or form, so until then they are very much in the EU.

    Why doesn’t the EU sanction the USA. If they’re right about this, they’re right about this.

    The USA arming Saudi Arabia and enabling war in the middle east is hardly any better than Putin ‘invading’ EUkraine – and Russia’s being sanctioned. .

    Less weapons for Turkey and less weapons for Saudia Arabia to arm head choppers in Syria. It only gets better doesn’t it?
