The Ministry of Health mentioned in a statement that the Saudi-led coalition refused to open Sana’a airport to send them for treatment abroad, despite appeals launched by the ministry and doctors.

This tragedy comes to reflect to the whole world the health and humanitarian situation of children in Yemen during the 4 years of aggression and siege. Dozens of civilians die every day because of the closure of Sana’a International Airport.
