King Salman pardons Saudi servicemen
King Salman Bin Abdelaziz announced a pardon on 10 July for all servicemen involved in Operation Restoring Hope in Yemen. The statement referred to an amnesty for “military and disciplinary penalties, in regard of some rules and disciplines”. It gave no indication of what the pardon covers. Saudi-led coalition forces have repeatedly been accused of war crimes by human rights groups, who cite the use of cluster bombs and air strikes that appear to target civilians.
