UNITED NATIONS, April 16. /TASS/. Jamal Benomar, Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Yemen, has tendered resignation, France Presse News Agency said on Thursday.
The United Nations secretariat has officially confirmed resignation of Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Yemen Jamal Benomar.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed Benomar his special adviser on Yemen in August 2012.
Since August 2014, Yemen has been suffering from a severe political and security crisis. In late January 2015, the armed groups of Ansar Allah (Houthi rebels) seized the country’s capital city of Sana’a and forced President Abd Rabuh Mansur Hadi and the government to announce resignation. The president tried to hide in the port city of Aden but after the Houthi seized this city on March 25 he had to flee the country.
After Abd Rabuh Mansur Hadi called for help from the Gulf countries, Saudi Arabia’s air force supported by aviation of Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates launched an operation Decisive Storm against the Houthis on March 26. Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan and Sudan joined the Saudi-led coalition. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as many as 643 people were killed and 2,226 were wounded in bombings in a period from March 26 to April 6.
