The Arab Coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen, announced on Friday the continued provision of facilities and permits for the movement of UN and relief agencies inside Yemen.
The coalition's statement added that 157 permits were issued for humanitarian organizations during the last 72 hours in Yemen.
