Question for Candidates: Bombs in Yemen

May 17, 2018


Since March 2015, the U.S. has supported the Saudi-led military coalition to wage a devastating war in Yemen, which has plunged that country into humanitarian crisis

U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen is literally fueling the largest humanitarian crisis in the world today. U.S. pilots are re-fueling Saudi bomber jets as they drop U.S.-made bombs on Yemeni civilians. Will you work to end all U.S. military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen?

FCNL Perspective

Ask your candidates about bombs in Yemen

Act Now

Since March 2015, the U.S. has supported the Saudi-led military coalition to wage a devastating war in Yemen, which has plunged that country into humanitarian crisis. That coalition is bombing civilians and blocking humanitarian aid from getting into the country. The U.S. has backed this coalition at every stage in this war, from furnishing bomber jets and bombs to sending U.S. pilots to refuel Saudi bomber jets in Yemen’s skies. Congress should end U.S. support for this war and stop all arms sales to the Saudi-led coalition.
