An estimated 6,000 to 8,000 U.N. peacekeepers have been deployed in Yemen in the past year, and the U.”s use of unmanned aerial vehicles has increased significantly, according to a new report.
The U.K.-based International Crisis Group released a report on Monday that found that the U,S.
and Britain are deploying drones to support the Yemeni government.
The United States is also using drones in Afghanistan, according the report, which was commissioned by the International Crisis Research Center, a Washington-based nonprofit group.
The report is the first of its kind to include U.n. drone deployment data.
The group said it is “the first of the three-year period of high-level U.s. drone deployments” that it is tracking.
The data show the drone fleet in Yemen increased from 4,000 in April 2016 to nearly 9,000 last year.
In March, the U., the United Kingdom and other nations signed a memorandum of understanding that allows the U and other countries to fly the drones over Yemen.
The drone program has led to the deaths of at least 16 people, including civilians.
It has also drawn criticism for violating international law.
