Arab coalition loosens Yemen’s blockade

The coalition led by Saudi Arabia eased the blockade of Yemen, allowing the delivery of humanitarian aid to Sana'a, as well as the main ports of Al-Salif and Hodeidu, reports TASS.

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports that after the introduction of the 6 November blockade of Yemen, the Saudi-led coalition eased restrictions on humanitarian supplies to Sana'a airport, as well as to the ports of Hodeida and Al-Salif,
A spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, Stefan Dusarrik, told reporters.

According to him, "on Saturday, three UN aircraft arrived in Sana'a, one of which delivered 1,9 million doses of diphtheria vaccines for children."

As previously reported by the UN, since August only in the province of Ibb, 14 children have died of an infectious disease.

On Sunday, a commercial vessel was admitted to Hodeidah for the first time in three weeks, delivering thousands of tons of flour to 5,5. And on Monday, the vessel chartered by the world organization delivered 25 thousand tons of wheat to the port of Al-Salif.

A week ago, Saudi Arabia notified the UN of its intention to ease the blockade of Yemen, introduced in early November in response to the missile attack on Riyadh. Representatives of the coalition explained that all air and sea ports, as well as land border crossing points were closed in order to prevent deliveries weapons the insurgents from Iran.

On Monday, Stefan Dujarric also warned that there was an acute shortage of fuel in Yemen, which is necessary for the operation of hospitals and water supply systems.

          Oh how! And the Jews? And other denominations? Cut or pardon? Chevo is impossible for Christians, but for others? Do they have blue blood? Incidentally, the quietest Christians also shed blood on the blood. Where are the Wahhabis.

            Do Christians explode in mosques in the east? Probably yes, I said sharply of course. But there are too many churches destroyed

      Which ear? The next vaccine was delivered, of unknown production, of unknown quality, but from a well-known organization. And for free. 14 died (but they delivered 1.5 million doses). For a long time, they “thought,” finally realized. That’s the end of the Yemeni children. They cannot defeat the Hussites directly, so wait for the "mission" of the UN. To mask 5000 tons of flour, that would not ask questions. 5 thousand tons of flour, for the states, this is dust.

        In order to clearly understand why the priority in humanitarian aid is not given to blankets, not food and other medicines, namely vaccines, you need to read the report of our Ministry of Health on the problem of diphtheria, everything is black and white ... I quote: “like last year, the number of cases Diphtheria prevailed in the vaccinated group ... ", you feel the catch, there are more cases among those who have been vaccinated, now we will put this on Yemen ... the war is moving into a new stage.

    At our military department Segal taught ... He talked about our military advisers in those parts ..
    He said: we are developing a plan for a military operation to capture an important enemy, and the next morning we see / hear a gypsy camp - with music, dances, bells and lambs for an offering - yesterday’s enemies come to take back their captive. :)

    Now the United States will put its quasi-face here, and carpet bombing of pastures and camps of civilians will begin.

    an interesting situation develops - it resembles "help" in the development of the West in America ... when the Indians were supplied with blankets infected with smallpox. We don’t take force, we take "humanitarian aid"

    Saudi Arabia can not only have material problems related to the war in Yemen, but also oil transit problems? Not for nothing is this kind of ridiculous information about the Russian Navy base, and even on the Red Sea it has gone. Do you have to pay Bakshish or bow to Pu again?

    Something some kind of distrust of UN vaccinations. And all because of a double game, or rather a lie.
