UN Security Council: Yemen (Middle School)
Delegates assigned varying countries will discuss and debate steps to be taken in response to the crisis in Yemen, the internal issues of civil war, as well as civilian casualties due to Saudi Arabian intervention and activity. The military coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in Yemen has killed thousands of civilians in airstrikes and tortured detainees — actions that may amount to war crimes, as explained by United Nations investigators. It is up to the delegates of this committee to research the views of their assigned country with focus on Saudi’s Arabia’s war in Yemen, and propose appropriate actions to be taken. Delegates may come up with such ideas as getting involved directly with Yemen, by force or communication, or they may look for a way to deal with this issue without direct intervention.
