CAIRO (Reuters) – Yemen’s Houthis will suspend all United Nations and humanitarian flights to Sanaa International airport over fuel scarcity as of Wednesday, the group stated in a statement on Monday.
The Iran-aligned Houthi movement took over the capital Sanaa in the north and most significant cities in 2014 after ousting the globally recognized government. Ever since, only U.N. and humanitarian flights have actually been allowed by the Saudi-led union, which controls the Yemeni airspace, to land there.
