The Saudi foreign minister is to brief British MPs personally to urge them not to ban UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia in light of UN claims that British weapons were used to conduct indiscriminate attacks in Yemen on hospitals, markets and cities.

The Westminster briefing by Adel Al-Jubeir on Wednesday comes hours before the select committee on the control of arms exports meets to decide whether to call for a ban on arms sales, a move that would represent a seismic shift in Middle East policy.The foreign office minister, Tobias Ellwood, on Monday apologised to the Commons for inaccurate answers given by ministers.

They said the government had assessed that the Saudis had not breached international humanitarian law in Yemen. He said the error, acknowledged just before the summer parliamentary recess in July, was not part of a plot to mislead of MPs.

It's about time we stopped providing the IS-that-made-it with lethal weapons they use to bomb the poorest country in the region killing over 3000 civilians and bombing hospitals etc - making us complicit in war-crimes.
