SANA’A – Deputy Foreign Minister in the National Salvation Government, Hussein al-Izzi, has vowed a painful and harsh public response to the invaders led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, over their rejection of international appeals to lift the air ban on Sana’a International Airport.
“After the states of aggression rejected all attempts to open Sana’a International Airport for humanitarian causes, our oppressed people have to open it up in their own way,” Hussein al-Izzi said on Monday.
The Deputy Foreign Minister did not disclose the nature of the response. However, he said: “We hope that the international community will abide by the same silence that we see from them when the states of aggression commit the most heinous crimes against our people, and will not deal in double standards when the Yemeni people defend themselves as is their legitimate right.”
The Saudi-led coalition forces continue to impose a complete air ban on the airports in all provinces that are not controlled by them topped by Sana’a International Airport for almost three years, causing the deaths of thousands of patients and wounded people whose medical condition needed to be treated abroad.
