Iranian Amb to Yemen slams continued closure of Sana'a airport

Sana'a (IP) - Iran's ambassador to Yemen called for the reopening of Sana'a International Airport to end the suffering and problems of the people of this country.

Iran PressMiddle East: The Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Yemen, Hassan Irlou, in a tweet on Saturday night stated that the Yemeni people are suffering a lot due to the closure of Sana'a International Airport.

Irlou noted that thousands of critically ill patients need to travel for treatment, and thousands of migrants want to return home to their families.

At the end of his message, Irlou said: "When does the human conscience wake up?"

Officials from the Yemeni National Salvation Government, as well as international bodies, have repeatedly called for the reopening of Sana'a International Airport to accelerate aid to the Yemeni people.

The airport has been closed since 2016 due to the air blockade by Saudi Arabia and the coalition invading Yemen. It was one of the ways to send food and medical aid to Yemen, which was targeted by the Saudi coalition.

It has also been repeatedly targeted by Saudi coalition airstrikes.

Since 2015, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as a coalition of several Arab countries and with the help of the United States and Britain, have launched large-scale attacks against Yemen, the poorest Arab country.

The military aggression has so far resulted in nothing but the killing and wounding of tens of thousands of Yemenis, as well as the displacement of millions of deprived citizens, the destruction of infrastructure, famine, starvation, and the spread of infectious diseases in Yemen.
