star this property answer text <p>Disaggregating this information to 2018 alone would be misleading without the addition of sensitive contextual information, which I am withholding as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice relations between the United Kingdom and other States.</p><p>As at 4 July, the total number of alleged instances of breaches or violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) in Yemen listed on the &quot;Tracker&quot; database maintained by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) is 356. Of these, 14 are duplicate entries, which means that some incidents will have been recorded on more than one occasion likely because of the incomplete nature of Non-Governmental Organisation and media reporting upon which the MOD relies to update the &quot;Tracker&quot;.</p><p>The MOD does not investigate allegations of IHL violations. The Saudi-led Coalition is best placed to do this, and does so through its Joint Incident Assessment Team.</p> more like this

We continue to press for action to address the humanitarian situation and encourage all parties to engage in the UN-led political process in good faith. We have been clear that ultimately the only solution to the Yemeni conflict is a political one.</p> more like this
