​We regularly raise the importance of compliance with International Humanitarian Law (IHL) with the Saudi-led Coalition at all levels. When allegations of IHL violations are made, we insist that they are investigated and that any lessons are acted upon. We have also provided training on IHL compliance to the Saudi-led coalition.
