Saudi-led coalition reopens port of Hudaydah, Sanaa airport

Riyadh, Nov 23 (IANS): The Saudi-led coalition announced on Wednesday the reopening of Port of Hudaydah and Sanaa airport, Saudi Press Agency reported.

The coalition temporarily closed all Yemeni ground, air, and sea ports early this month after the Saudi air force intercepted a missile launched from Yemen towards Riyadh.

The coalition accused Iran of smuggling the missile through Yemen's ports.

The reopening of the port of Hudaydah and Sanaa airport took place to receive urgent humanitarian and relief materials.

Meanwhile, the coalition renewed its call for the United Nations to urgently send a team of experts to review and enhance the UN's inspection and verification mechanism.

    After many months of denying the blockade, the Saudi's claim to have finally opened up one seaport and an airport. Too little, too late.

    How many innocent men, woman and children have been seriously effected by this blockade, and the amount of human suffering in unfathomable. Can't just picture what would have happened if this blockade was done by any other country, other than Saudi Arabia.
