UN: Blockade on Yemen capital airport unacceptable
[16/January/2017]


SANA'A, Jan. 16 (SABA) – The United Nations Resident Coordinator/Humanitarian Coordinator and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Resident Representative for Yemen Jamie McGoldrick reiterated on Monday that the blockade imposed on Sana'a international airport is unacceptable because it causes much suffering on the Yemeni people .

This came at a press conference held in Sana'a prior to his leaving for Brussels, Geneva and London in order to launch the Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen for the current year 2017.

Mr McGoldrick said the United Nations is making efforts to unconditionally ensure humanitarian access to all those who are in need.

"It is currently difficult to limit damage to civilian infrastructure, but civilians pay the expensive price in Yemen," he said, adding that the numbers of civilian deaths caused by the aggression war on Yemen were more than 10 thousand people, while the injured were more than 40 thousand according to available statistics.

The programme plans to provide four cranes from Japan and four others from Dubai at the end of this month to the port of Hodeida to facilitate unloading ships and to speed up the arrival of aid to those who are in need for help, McGoldrick said.

He also said that around eight million Yemenis have lost their jobs or stopped their business because of the economic blockade, stressing on the urgent need to facilitat humanitarian aid access.
