The General Authority of Civil Aviation and Meteorology condemned the continuous and systematic targeting of the Republic’s airports by the coalition of aggression, the latest of which was yesterday bombing Taiz International Airport with several raids.
The deputy of the Authority, Raed Talib Jabal, indicated that the targeting of Taiz airport took place despite its departure from technical readiness due to previous bombing by the aggression.
The agent denounced the bombing of civilian airports, noting that this is a violation of all international laws and norms that criminalize any attacks on them, even during wars.
He condemned the continued international silence regarding the crimes of aggression, and reiterated Yemen’s request to the international community to quickly break the siege imposed on Sana’a International Airport to save the lives of patients and relieve the suffering of expatriates and stranded people in particular.
The agency’s representative also denied the validity of what was reported by some media and websites of the countries of the coalition of aggression, that the closure of Sana’a airport came as a result of its use as a corridor for smuggling weapons.
And he indicated that Sana’a International Airport is a civilian that provides air navigation services to civil aviation in accordance with international requirements and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
He pointed out that the recent allegations and lies of the coalition of aggression came to evade the demands of opening the airport after the murder and torture of the Yemeni expatriate young man, Abdul Malik Al-Sanabani, and other victims who died in the areas controlled by the forces of aggression, after their arrival at Aden Airport, where the situation became a threat to the lives of all.
