Sanaa: Any disruption of agreed-upon flight can mean a return to war
Yemen's Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein Al-Ezzi says he hopes that the aggression will abide by the truce and not disrupt or impede flights.
Yemen's Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein Al-Ezzi announced on Monday that until the end of the truce, two flights a day will be scheduled, hoping that the aggression will abide by this agreement and not seek to obstruct the flights.
Al-Ezzi tweeted that any obstruction could mean a return to war, noting that this is something that should not happen.
رحلتان يوميا خلال ماتبقى من الهدنة ونأمل سرعة الوفاء بذلك وعدم العودة لسلوكيات الإعاقة والعرقلة— حسين العزي (@hussinalezzi5) May 16, 2022
دعونا نمضي بخطى الرجال الواثقين لنعبر معاً نحو السلام والوئام واستعادة الإخاء وحسن الجوار
إن أي تعطيل أو إعاقة قد يعني العودة للحرب وهذا أمر لاينبغي أن يحدث أو يسمح أي عاقل بحدوثه .
The deputy foreign minister also addressed the Saudi-led coalition saying "let us move forward as confident men do and cross toward peace and harmony and the recovery of brotherhood and good-neighborly [relations]."
The Minister of Transport in the Sanaa government, Abdulwahab Yahya Al-Durra, announced on Sunday that "The first commercial flight from Sanaa airport, since the beginning of the armistice, will depart to Jordan tomorrow, Monday."
Al-Durra pointed out that "The commercial flight will operate tomorrow, Monday, to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and will return on the same day, via Yemenia Airways."
The minister denied "the existence of any impediment or decision from the United Nations that prevents the continuation of commercial flights from Sanaa airport permanently without linking them to the humanitarian truce... especially since the United Nations inspects and monitors commercial flights."
