Shura Council Condemns Suspension of Flights Through Sana'a Airport

News - Yemen: The Shura Council condemned the suspension of Yemenia Airlines flights for passengers and patients to and from Sana’a International Airport due to pressure of the US-Saudi aggression and mercenaries.

In a statement, Monday, the Council indicated that the aggression coalition’s continued use of the humanitarian issue through its cheap tools aims to evade commitment to what was negotiated and agreed upon regarding expanding flights to Cairo and India.

 

It pointed out that Sanaa International Airport is the main airport of Yemen, and the continued restriction of flights to and from it has caused thousands of patients to die.

 

The Council called on the international community and the UN Security Council responsible for not remaining silent about all the violations and crimes committed by the aggression coalition led by Saudi Arabia and its mercenaries against the Yemeni people.

It's worth noting that Sana'a Airport serves as a crucial lifeline for millions of Yemenis. Over the past year, the coalition of aggression has deliberately created uncertainty and instability around the airport's status, despite the truce and de-escalation efforts.

Yemenia Airways has suspended flights to and from Sana'a International Airport under pressure from the US-Saudi aggression, which is viewed as an attempt to disrupt the ongoing Omani-mediated peace process.

Reuters has reported that Yemenia Airways will cease its flights between Sana'a and Jordan, beginning on October 1st.

On 9 August 2016, the Saudi-led coalition imposed restrictions on Yemen’s airspace resulting in the closure of Sana’a Airport to commercial flights, trapping millions of Yemenis in a war zone and preventing the free movement of humanitarian and commercial goods from entering through this route. As a result, thousands of Yemenis with long-term health conditions such as cancer, kidney, liver and blood conditions have died while waiting for treatment unavailable in Yemen.

The closure of the airport has also led to an almost complete halt to commercial cargo such as medicine, medical supplies and equipment coming into the country. Coupled with restrictions on Hodeidah port, this has caused prices of some medicine to double, making it unaffordable for most of the population and further contributing to the decline of Yemen’s health system, already decimated by the aggression.

With the beginning of the truce last year, the aggression tried to evade its commitment to open Sana'a airport and make flights only to one destination, Jordan, and for a very limited number.

Sana'a confirmed more than once that the continued closure of Sana'a airport proves the lack of seriousness of theUS-Saudi aggression to bring peace to Yemen.
