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.

125 permits were issued to UN organizations, including 24 permits for the Red Cross, five permits for Médecins Sans Frontières and three permits for King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief).

The coalition stressed that violations by the Houthi militias of international humanitarian law deliberately impede the work of relief organizations.

In another development, the Arab Coalition supporting legitimacy in Yemen intercepted and destroyed on Friday a booby-trapped boat in the Red Sea, which the pro-Iranian Houthi militias tried to mobilize toward Jazan area, south of Saudi Arabia. Read more
