As part of the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iran-backed rebels in Yemen, the government of Bahrain is worsening the humanitarian crisis and inflicting civilian casualties in Yemen through its bombing campaign. The U.S. shouldn’t provide Bahrain weapons to continue the campaign.
Bahrain is an ally in the effort to bring stability to the Middle East, and there’s no guarantee this equipment would be used in Yemen because another ceasefire could be reached soon. Congress should allow this sale to go through and continue to monitor the situation in Yemen.
