United Nations: Yemenis who airlifted to Jordan to undergo treatment return home

The United Nations reported that Yemenis who were transported by plane to Jordan to obtain treatment for critical illnesses earlier this year were returned home on Sunday on a flight to the Houthi-held capital Sanaa. Thirty-one men, women and children in very need of medical care were flown out in February along with their companions.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported in a tweet, without indicating how many had returned: A UN flight carrying civilian Yemenis & their companions just landed in #Sanaa. Thanks to the UN medical air bridge, the patients received treatment in #Jordan for different chronic conditions for which they could not be treated inside #Yemen.

In fact, The UN has organized two removal flights to Amman in February, the first carrying seven children and the second with 24 other patients.

This return of the medical flying comes after a short time of the warring sides in Yemen’s long conflict agreed to exchange 1,081 prisoners, after discussions in Switzerland.
