Saudi Arabia Signs A New Deal To Buy 48 Warplanes From Britain

Saudi Arabia's crown prince has wrapped up a three-day visit to the UK by signing a deal to buy 48 warplanes. The jet deal immediately came under criticism from human rights groups.

Britain on Friday signed a multi-billion-pound preliminary order for Saudi Arabia to purchase 48 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets, despite its criticism of the kingdom's war in Yemen.

The "memorandum of intent" to buy the jets came on the last day of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's three-day visit to the UK.
Military equipment maker BAE Systems will carry out the potentially lucrative deal, which has been under discussion for several years.
A Saudi-led military coalition has been fighting Houthi rebels in Yemen since 2015, with rights groups accusing both sides of carrying out possible war crimes.
"If agreed, this shameful deal will be celebrated in the palaces of Riyadh and by the arms companies who will profit from it, but it will mean even greater destruction for the people of Yemen," said Andrew Smith of the Campaign Against Arms Trade.
Human Rights.
"UK shamelessly selling Saudi 48 Typhoon jets, while Saudi air force continues to rain death and misery on Yemen," tweeted Philippe Bolopion, the deputy director for global advocacy at Human Rights Watch.
Prince Mohammed, who may rule Saudi Arabia for decades when the king dies, has sought to re-brand the image of the conservative monarchy.
But the war he launched in Yemen has tarnished his image as a reformer and moderate.

Treasure here is the story: The fighting can be traced back to the handover of power from long-time autocratic President Ali Abdullah Saleh t his deputy and current president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi in November 2011.
The handover was forced in a bid to return stability to the country following the Arab Spring, a series of uprisings against long-time rulers across the Middl East.
Hadi has struggled to deal with various problems afflicting the nation including alQaeda attacks, a separatist rising in the south, divided loyalties in the military, corruption, lack of food and unemployment.
Who is fighting who?
Hadi's struggles prompted the rising of the Houthi movement, championing Yemen's minority Shia community.

On December 20, the fighting exceeded the 1,000 day mark, with American force also becoming involved as they target Al-Qaeda fighters operating within Yemen.
In July 2017, Houthi forces fired four missiles at a Saudi Arabian air force base The Saudi's claimed the real target had been the holy city of Mecca and that they were able to shoot down the missiles.
Recently, graphic videos have begun to surface from the Yemeni capital Sanaa where locals have gathered to witness public executions.
In November 2017, missiles were fired at a major Middle Eastern airport used by thousands of Brits every year.
The Saudi Arabian military shot down the missile, which was fired at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh.
And on December 19, a missile fired at Riyadh was shot down moments before it hit a royal palace.
Saudi air defences intercepted a ballistic missile fired towards the city, Saudi-owned channel al-Arabiya reported in a news flash quoting a Saudi-led military coalition official.
