Yemen

About despair and doom

Norway and the war in Yemen

Without people in Norway aware of this, Norwegian politicians approve the sale of weapons and ammunition to oppressive dictatorships that systematically kill civilians in Yemen. 

«Norwegian authorities lack spine»

The situation in Yemen is worrying. Nevertheless, Norway still sells weapons to the parties. "I am shocked at the scale of serious war crimes committed by warring parties," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a recent report on children and armed conflict.

Sissel Overvoll works for MSF in war-torn Yemen: "We are constantly hearing air strikes and getting patients injured by bombing every single day," the Norwegian nurse says. 

War crimes with Norwegian ammunition?

The war in Yemen has led to the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. All the warring parties are responsible for war crimes, according to the UN. Nevertheless, Norway continues to export arms to the parties.

"Norway helps dictators"

"Sad, but not surprising," says Wojoud Mejalli, an award-winning activist and journalist from Yemen about the Norwegian arms sale.
