This helps us support Saudi compliance with International Humanitarian Law (IHL). We also have a very small number of staff working in Saudi headquarters in a liaison capacity only. These personnel are not targeting advisers and have no advance knowledge of Saudi-led coalition airstrikes in Yemen.</p> more like this
