Aden airport receives first commercial flight after Yemen blockade

UN calls for an end to Yemen blockade

UN calls for an end to Yemen blockade

In a letter to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday, Iran's foreign minister called on the world body to urgently address the deplorable situation in the war-torn Yemen.

At present, more than half of the healthcare facilities in the country have already closed down.

Yemen's Houthi rebels have accused the Saudi-led coalition of bombing the country's main global airport, destroying a navigation station that is critical to receiving already limited aid shipments. The blockade was eased intermittently, allowing some amount of fuel, supplies and food in the country.

The Saudi U.N. ambassador denied that there has been an embargo, saying "a temporary procedure" was taken for a few days to ensure the safety and security of Yemenis and Saudis, and that supplies were available.

Yemen is "dependent on imported food, medicines and fuel".

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) Shares Sold by Penserra Capital Management LLC
Baird reissued a "hold" rating and set a $175.00 target price on shares of Netflix in a research note on Friday, September 1st. According to their observations and findings, the stock could provide a high EPS of $0.45/share and a low EPS of $0.4/share.

However, Mr McGoldrick said there was "no indication" yet of the blockade being lifted.

The Saudi-led coalition hopes that will prevent "the smuggling of weapons, ammunitions, missile parts and cash that are regularly being supplied by Iran and Iranian accomplices to the Houthi rebels", the statement said. It calls on Saudi Arabia to not target school, hospitals or other targets on its no-strike list and to broadly improve targeting.

The civil aviation department of Yemen said on Tuesday that the Saudi-led Arab coalition fighting rebels in Yemen inflicted an airstrike on the Sanaa global airport, which resulted in the destruction of its navigation system. Also, a massive protest was staged by thousands of Yemenis outside the United Nations offices in rebel-controlled capital Sanaa. Almost 80 percent of imports-commercial and humanitarian-come through Hodeida and Saleef ports, both to remain shuttered by Saudi Arabia.

Flights between Egyptian capital Cairo and Yemen's port city of Aden resumed after an 8-day hiatus, according to an official of Yemen's national flag carrier on Tuesday. As quoted by The Hindu, the Saudi mission statement hopes that the team from the United Nations will help in preventing "the smuggling of weapons, ammunitions, missile parts and cash that are regularly being supplied by Iran and Iranian accomplices to the Houthi rebels".
