The Ministry of Public Health and Population in Yemen confirmed that more than 11 thousand and 250 patients died because they could not travel abroad for treatment due to the continued aggression and siege on Yemen.

The official spokesman of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Abdul Hakim Al-Kuhlani told NewNews that more than 100 thousand patients need to travel annually for treatment for many sick reasons, including what is very serious and difficult treatment inside the country.

“If human and technical resources are available to treat him, he is besieged by access to medicines and medical supplies because of the continuation of the unjust siege,” he said.
“The opening of Sana’a airport must be done immediately because every delay for one day leads to the death of 325 patients from all governorates of the Republic,” he said. He pointed out that the aggression is committing a complex crimes by targeting Yemenis ,preventing them from traveling to receive treatment and preventing the medicines entry.

The spokesman confirmed that the delay of the arrival of humanitarian aid and United Nations aircraft to Sana’a airport because of obstacles and the need to obtain permission from the alliance of aggression, exacerbates the humanitarian tragedy of patients in general and the fight against the cholera epidemic and other epidemics.

Dr. Al-Kuhlani called on the international community to open Sana’a International Airport, saying that depriving 30 million citizens from traveling through their capital airport is an unprecedented crime in human history.

“A year after the closure of the airport, the situation of the patients has worsened and the number of deaths has increased because of their inability to travel abroad for treatment. The world should not be silent about this humanitarian crime.

Dr. Al-Kuhlani pointed out that it is immoral to make the opening of the airport for the travel of civilians and patients in particular is an area for political compromise or even for international disputes because it is purely humanitarian issue.
