10:00 pm
it's citizens for the first time a member of the. salvation army talks to al-jazeera at this time we know that culture we know the problems that affect this part of the world very very well and that is something that we're trying to take to the rest of the world we have gone to places and reported on a story that it might take an international network for months to be able to do it united nations peacekeepers are out there going i'm tired. we are challenging the forces we're challenging companies who are going to places where nobody else is going. the u.n. report the documents human rights violations in yemen and claims are all sides of the conflict of violating international humanitarian law.
10:01 pm
i want to test and this is al jazeera live from london also coming our. violence breaks out in the occupied west bank between israeli forces and supporters of jailed palestinian teenager i had to mimi marching into the future the new head of south africa's ruling party promises to stamp out corruption and restore nelson mandela's mission and the speed devils burning through some of peru's most mysterious heritage sites. al-jazeera has been given access to an unpublished un report that chronicles the extent of human rights violations and documents possible war crimes in yemen the findings presented to the security council critical of saudi led coalition
10:02 pm
airstrikes which have caused the majority of civilian deaths in the war the report also bolsters accusations by the us that is rainy and weapons have been supplied to who's the rebels which breaks a u.n. embargo the united arab emirates is accused of running torch accounts in yemen where people have allegedly been beaten and electrocuted the report paints a devastating picture of a conflict which has left more than ten thousand people dead and led to widespread famine and displacement diplomatic headed to jail space who has seen the reports how small. this is a report to the u.n. security council has not been made public it's only been given to the fifteen members of the security council but i've been allowed to read a copy and it's very hard hitting and very critical of all of the parties in the war in yemen it questions whether yemen can continue to be one country it says in the south because of the length of the war in the divisions that have emerged there
10:03 pm
is the real possibility of secession into a separate south yemen it says in the south of the country people displaying the flag of the old country of south yemen and are not loyal to president had he although they're formally under his command it says that president heidi has no longer effective command and control of the military and security forces in the south of yemen it says one of the reasons that there is this lack of stability in yemen is actually the forces that have been built up by the saudi led coalition it says that there are proxy units that they have drawn up but it says that these units will do more to further the fragility of yemen then they will do to hold the state together it says they pose a threat to peace and stability in yemen it is also very critical of the coalition for civilian casualties in yemen it says that it appears that the saudi
10:04 pm
led coalition has not been following international humanitarian law and it says it's likely that some of those who are responsible for planning and executing airstrikes fall under the designation of the security council as people who should be subject to sanctions again the another damning part of the report is about the u.n. a part of the coalition in the camps there running inside yemen it says that there has been torture in these camps it talks about beatings electrocution constrain suspension the use of what it. the cage which is confinement in a cage in the sunlight and the denial of medical treatment it says working with the government of yemen gives the u.a.e. plausible deniability so it is a possibility are now now given this report by the panel of experts that the security council must consider whether there should be sanctions against members of the coalition and also sanctions against iran because the who these sides are also
10:05 pm
criticized it says that there have been military remnants of military equipment and drone that are of iranian origin and were introduced in yemen after the security council adopted an arms embargo arpita salisbury is a senior consulting fellow with the middle east and north africa program at chatham house he says the report shows yemen is fragmenting into several regional conflicts and a fresh approach to peace may be necessary the issue that we have right now if we have is we have a un the peace process which is really fixed focused on the idea of a single conflict a binary conflict between who these formerly the who the seller alliance on one side and the government of yemen backed by saudi arabia on the other and when in reality what you have is multiple interlinked sort of overlapping conflicts going
10:06 pm
on and rivalries going on so that if a peace deal is reached simply between the who is on the one hand and the government of yemen on the other that means that you are excluding a lot of different groups who are very involved in the conflict have control over different areas and that in turn creates incentives for them to generate new conflict again in the future so we might see that the big war the big conflict that we're looking at from the outside ending descend into a series of smaller conflicts for for regional autonomy. dozens of pro hoofy women have demonstrated in unarmed protest in yemen's capital sana'a who feel leaders called on female supporters to hold a rally as a show of support against the saudi led coalition the protesters said they are committed to finding a solution to the crisis saying they would support yemen's army and force and you know i mean as. we came out today to prove to the saudi led coalition that our men and women a capable of facing them for a thousand years not only
