No. Members of the Royal Air Force stationed in the Middle East are not acting in an advisory capacity to the Saudi-Emirati led coalition on the military operation in Hudaydah. We continue to press for action to address the humanitarian situation and encourage all parties to engage in the UN-led political process in good faith. We have been clear that ultimately the only solution to the Yemeni conflict is a political one.
