Yemen’s rebel Houthi group announced closure of Sana’a International Airport
I read this news that according to local media, Yemen’s rebel Houthi group has announced that Sana’a International Airport was closed to the UN and humanitarian flights due to a fuel shortage. The airport will not provide flight services to aircraft belonging to UN and humanitarian aid organizations. An official from Civil Aviation and Meteorology Institution said that the fuel crisis at the airport was caused by the Saudi Arabian-led coalition forces blocking the entry of petroleum products into al-Hudaydah Port for two months. Thousands of Yemenis, including civilians, are believed to have been killed in the conflict, which has led to one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises as millions remain at risk of starvation.
