CAIRO, April 11. /TASS/. A Russian plane is expected to fly to Yemen on Sunday to evacuate more people from the war-hit country, the Russian embassy in the Arab Republic of Egypt has said.
"The plane is in Cairo and is waiting for the permission for the flight," the embassy said on Saturday. "Most likely, it will fly to Sana’a tomorrow," the embassy representative said.
On Friday night, the Saudi-led coalition carried out a series of air strikes on the military facilities in Yemen’s capital Sana’a, including on the air base located near the international airport. A fire broke out later at the airport that serves civil aviation.
The Russian planes have evacuated around 600 people from Yemen.
On April 6, a Russian aircraft evacuated 159 people from Sana’a, including 47 Russians and 89 citizens of Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Moscow also helped to evacuate foreigners who wished to leave Yemen onboard the Russian plane.
Overnight to March 26, Saudi Arabia’s Air Force backed by Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates launched a military operation against the Houthi rebels who took control over a significant part of Yemen’s territory.
The coalition was supported by Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan and Sudan.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of April 6, a total of 643 people died and another 2,226 were wounded as the result of combat actions in Yemen. The conflict has affected 15.9 million people. More than 254,000 Yemenis have fled the country. More than 334,000 people have been internally displaced by the conflict.
