Sana’a raises the ceiling of its demands regarding Sana’a airport as the crisis continues

Sana’a raised the ceiling of its demands regarding Sana’a Airport on Tuesday; this coincides with the continuation of the crisis amidst escalating fears of a war eruption.

Exclusive – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:

Abdulwahab Al-Durra, the Minister of Transport in the Salvation Government, reiterated his government’s insistence on opening the airport to all destinations, stating that there is no justification for besieging the airport in the absence of a UN resolution and describing the recent actions by the coalition as a “crime.”

The statements by Minister Al-Durra came on the eve of reports about new negotiations with the coalition regarding the opening of Sana’a Airport to new destinations.

The pacification agreement between Sana’a and Riyadh, which was sponsored by the United Nations, stipulates the operation of flights from Sana’a airport to several airports, most notably Egypt, India, and Jordan.

Since the de-escalation began nearly two years ago, the coalition has only allowed one destination, which has been repeatedly suspended, namely Jordan.

The airport crisis resurfaced recently with the decision of the pro-coalition government in Aden to escalate the situation using the Yemenia card, starting with stopping its flights to the Jordanian capital for the month of June and ending with preventing the return of Yemeni pilgrims to Sana’a.

Although Saudi Arabia reversed the escalation decision in the past few hours by issuing directives to resume the Sana’a-Amman flight, Sana’a rejected the move, considering it an attempt to undermine the full reopening of the airport.

The airport file is one of several files that threaten to explode the situation militarily with Saudi Arabia, following threats by the Ansar Allah leader, Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, in addition to the bank and port files, and this is an equation that Al-Houthi drew up in his recent speech on the occasion of the new Hijri year.
