Yemen: Closing only port ‘death to Yemeni people’ says transport minister

The closure of Yemen’s al-Hudayda port — the country’s only open border — «would mean the death of the Yemeni people,» according to the Minister of Transportation Zakaria al-Shami speaking in Sanaa on Monday. Al-Shami stressed that Yemen's other border crossing points via land and air «are completely demolished.» The minister stressed, «Al-Hudayda port is the lung with which the Yemeni people... Еще are breathing; it is the source for food, clothes, medicine for more than 21 million people.» Yemen has been suffering from crippling blockades for more than a year. The Sana'a International Airport has been closed for commercial flights since August 9, 2016, after the Saudi-led coalition imposed an air embargo on the airport.
