French weapons are not being used against civilians in Yemen, Armed Forces Minister of France Florence Parly told Radio Classique on Thursday, APAreports.

“To my knowledge, French weapons are not being used in any offensive in the war in Yemen. I do not have any evidence that would lead me to believe that French arms are behind the origins of civilian victims in Yemen,” the French minister said.

Recall that investigative website Disclose reported that French arms, including tanks and laser-guided missile systems sold to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, were being used in the Yemeni war against civilians.
