Abstract

This paper attempts to critically analyse the legality of use of force undertaken by the Saudi led Coalition in Yemen who were invited by the President Mr.Hadi in order to constrain the actions of Houthis. In pursuance of restoring peace in Yemen, the Saudi led Coalition used certain methods of warfare which, though alleged to be valid and legal under International law, the usage of such methods brought a cobra effect wherein it contributed more than any other force used by Non-State armed groups costing many lives of Yemeni civilians and the worst humanitarian crisis. The paper thus focuses on evaluating the legality of actions undertaken by the Saudi led Coalition under International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law.
