SANA'A, March 19 (Saba) - Spokesman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation Mazen Ghanem on Sunday called on the international community to take immediate action to lift the flight blockade on Sana'a International Airport.

"The impact of closing Sana'a International Airport caused major humanitarian disaster, particularly those patients who are in dire need to go abroad for receiving medical treatment," said Ghanem in a statement to Saba.

Thousand patients have died, especially from cancer due to the siege on the airport, which prevent them from travelling abroad for medical treatment, he said.

Still, hundreds of cancer patients are waiting for their unknown fate, hopping to be allowed to travel.
