UN : Yemenis return home after ‘mercy flight’ to Jordan to undergo treatment


[04-10-2020 08:01 AM]

Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Yemenis who were airlifted to Jordan to undergo treatment for critical illnesses earlier this year were brought home on Sunday on a flight into the Houthi-held capital Sanaa, the United Nations said.

Thirty-one men, women and children in dire need of medical care were flown out in February along with their companions.

“A UN flight carrying civilian Yemenis & their companions just landed in #Sanaa,” the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in a tweet, without saying how many had returned.

“Thanks to the UN medical air bridge, the patients received treatment in #Jordan for different chronic conditions for which they could not be treated inside #Yemen.”


The UN organised two evacuation flights to Amman in February, the first carrying seven children and the second with 24 other patients.
