As part of the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iran-backed rebels in Yemen, the government of Qatar is worsening the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and inflicting civilian casualties through its bombing campaign. Qatar has also supported terror groups like Al Qaeda, Hamas, and ISIS.
Qatar 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.
