Saudi authorities have on Thursday issued a new circular regarding Yemeni doctors working in Saudi hospitals, as part of a plan to expel Yemeni workers.
According to diplomatic sources at the Yemeni embassy in Riyadh, the circular was addressed to all hospitals operating in Saudi Arabia, demanding that they end the contracts of all doctors, specialists and consultants of Yemeni origin.
It also gave three months for Yemeni health workers to leave Saudi Arabia.
The circular is part of a frenzied campaign launched by the Saudi regime against Yemeni expatriates and workers in all sectors of the economy, including higher education.
The mass expulsion is also expected to affect other sectors, and is aimed at further the economic collapse of Yemeni families and the destruction of the Yemeni riyal currency, which had for decades relied heavily on remittances from expatriates
