CAIRO, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Yemen’s Houthis will suspend all United Nations and humanitarian flights to Sanaa International airport over fuel shortage as of Wednesday, the group said in a statement on Monday.
The Iran-aligned Houthi movement took over the capital Sanaa in the north and most major cities in 2014 after ousting the internationally recognized government. Since then, only U.N. and humanitarian flights have been allowed by the Saudi-led coalition, which controls the Yemeni airspace, to land there.
