The Ministry of Transport and the General Authority for Aviation said that more than 13 thousand Yemenis have died as a result of the air embargo on Yemen, and that nearly a hundred thousand others are in urgent need to travel for treatment abroad.

Yemeni Minister of Transport Zacarias Al-Shami called on the international community to send an international team to investigate the suffering of the Yemeni people as a result of the blockade and the closure of Sanaa airport.

For his part, the official spokesman of the General Authority for Aviation: The number of person who died with a need to travel abroad for treatment was thirteen thousand nine hundred and fourteen (13914), and 95 thousand of patients are currently in need today to travel abroad for treatment, in addition to the presence of 50 thousand people demanding to return home, Unable to cope with expenses.

The official spokesman of the General Authority for Aviation that the losses of Sanaa airport directly due to the forced closure by the US-Saudi aggression exceeded two billion dollars and 60 million dollars.

Saying that the continuation of the closure of Sanaa International Airport without any justification is a flagrant violation of international treaties and humanitarian laws, and the silence of the world in this regard is a stain on the human face and the course of humanitarian action.
