During the visit, Al-Bishri and the UN mission team listened to an explanation from the airport director, Ahmed Tarish, and the specialists about the procedures that were taken for the landing and take-off of the first plane scheduled to arrive tomorrow, June 7, since the Saudi-led coalition aircraft targeted the airport before eight years.
Informed sources said that a plane would arrive at the airport in a test flight coming from Djibouti as part of the logistical preparations to rescue the floating oil tank “Safer”, which requires the presence of a plane with the team.
