Saudi-led coali­tion to al­low aid flights to Sanaa

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The Saudi-led coali­tion bat­tling rebels in Ye­men said it would al­low hu­man­i­tar­ian flights into Sanaa’s in­ter­na­tional air­port after sev­eral days’ clo­sure due to re­newed hos­til­i­ties around the cap­i­tal. “Sanaa in­ter­na­tional air­port will be re­opened to United Na­tions flights and those of other agen­cies from Mon­day,” a coali­tion state­ment said. The air­port in the rebel-held cap­i­tal was closed since Au­gust 9, when Saudi-led coali­tion jets re­sumed air strikes around Sanaa fol­low­ing the break­down of UN-bro­kered peace talks be­tween the Ye­meni gov­ern­ment and Huthi rebels.
