A group of international humanitarian organisations and a number of American legislators have demanded the administration of President Joe Biden end the siege on Sana’a International Airport.
The organisations emphasised that the “cruel and senseless blockade is harming millions of innocent Yemenis, diplomacy and the peace process.”
According to The Common Dream website, the human rights and humanitarian organisations and a number of US legislators demanded President Biden to open the airport in order to provide humanitarian aid, indicating that the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes damaged the airport.
“The Biden administration should take advantage of every possible influence to put pressure on the Saudi-led coalition to end its siege of Sana’a International Airport,” the website said, quoting the statement of the organsations.
The statement stated that nearly 80% of the Yemeni population is in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, including 400,000 children under the age of five who are suffering from malnutrition.
