For the first time in 6 years, plane arrives in Sanaa
The first commercial flight lands at Sanaa International Airport for the first time in six years, after weeks of Saudi Arabia stalling the execution of the UN-brokered humanitarian and military truce.
Today, Monday, the first commercial flight since the start of the humanitarian and military truce, with only 15 days of it remaining, arrived at Sanaa International Airport.
The two-month humanitarian and military truce under the auspices of the United Nations entered into force on the second of April and ends on the second of June 2022, with the possibility of an extension.
The humanitarian truce in Yemen also allows the operation of two commercial flights per week, during the two-month truce, to and from Sanaa airport to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Arab Republic of Egypt.
Yesterday, the Minister of Transport in the Sanaa government, Abdul-Wahhab Yahya Al-Durra, announced that the first commercial flight from Sanaa airport will fly to Jordan on Monday.
This commercial flight was scheduled for the first time in six years, on April 24 to the Jordanian capital, Amman, but the Yemeni airline announced that it was postponed and not allowed to operate, following Saudi stalling, violating the truce.
Earlier, the Joint Meeting Parties condemned the Saudi coalition's procrastination in opening Sanaa airport and its failure to abide by the terms of the two-month truce announced by the United Nations without the slightest commitment from the coalition, especially about Sana'a airport.
Last month, a military official revealed to Saba news agency that the Saudi-led coalition and its mercenaries committed 124 breaches of the UN-brokered humanitarian and military truce in Yemen in 24 hours.
The coalition made 35 overflights with armed and spying reconnaissance aircraft in the airspaces of Marib, Hajjah, Jawf, Saada, and Taiz provinces.
