Ansarullah: Saudi Prevents Yemeni Delegation Plane from Leaving Oman
Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionary movement, Ansarullah, said that Saudi authorities prevented the national delegation’s plane from leaving Oman, where it was taking part in UN-brokered peace talks.
The flight was delayed for 72 hours, Ansaurllah spokesman Mohammad Abdul Salam said on his account on social media.
“In an irresponsible move, Saudi authorities barred the plane of the national delegation from leaving Muscat despite direct coordination with the United Nations,” Abdul Salam said.
The move comes as the Saudi-led coalition commits horrible crimes against Yemeni civilians, Ansarullah spokesman said.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Riyadh launched the campaign against Ansarullah revolutionaries (known as Houthis) in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the aggression, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
