Jordan: Two sons of Yemeni slain president Saleh left for third country

Published: Updated:

The Jordanian government said the two sons of slain former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh did not enter Amman, but rather left to a third country via the kingdom.

In a statement issued by the Jordanian foreign ministry, it said that Salah and Moudin, sons of Saleh, left in the UN plane from Yemen’s Sanaa to Amman in Jordan and stayed in the transit area for an hour, before continuing their flight to a third country.

The ministry did not name the third country.

The Arab coalition supporting the legitimate Yemeni government played a major role on Thursday, by facilitating and securing the safe transfer of the Saleh’s sons, who were detained since December 2017 by the pro-Iranian Houthi militias.
