The Permanent Representative of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations Ambassador Abdullah bin Yahya Al-Maalam stated on Monday that the Saudi-led Arab coalition seeks to establish safe humanitarian corridors to let aids to Yemeni citizens.

 

During his speech in a private meeting on Yemen on the sidelines of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), al-Maalam denied that corridors are to smuggle weapons to the Iran-backed Houthi militias.

 

He affirmed that “the Arab coalition is determined to open all the crossings and ports with Yemen, as long as its role is limited to the delivery of aid to the Yemeni people, not a gateway to support the terrorist militias.”

 

Moreover, he hailed the efforts some countries exert to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni people, pointing out that Saudi Arabia will continue its support to the political solution in solving the Yemeni crisis.

 

On Thursday, coalition's fighter jets conducted several airstrikes that targeted a camp belonging to Houthi militias north the Yemeni city of Sanaa.

 

The airstrikes targeted Houthi sites in Al Seyana camp, Al Hasba district, northern Sanaa, the official website of Yemeni army quoted a field source.
