Int’l orgs transport their employees from Aden, Britain warns

ADEN, Jul. 01 (YPA) – Dozens of workers in international organizations left the port city of Aden, southern Yemen, during the last hours, Human rights sources reported on Thursday.

The sources pointed out that a number of foreign workers, through four UN planes, left Aden Airport towards Cairo and Addis Ababa, and some of them headed towards the capital, Sanaa, by land, with the increase in terrorist acts in the city since last April.

The sources attributed the departure of international organizations from Aden city to the insecurity and threats to humanitarian workers.

Meanwhile, the British ambassador to the government loyal to Saudi-led coalition in Aden, Richard Oppenheim, called for the protection of relief workers from attacks while reaching the beneficiaries, indicating that the workers of international organizations face the risk of violence and targeting.

The city of Aden and the rest of the southern provinces under the control of the pro- coalition militia are witnessing a security chaos and an increase in the implementation of terrorist operations, in addition to armed confrontations between the various factions funded by the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Observers believe that the departure of the international organizations’ workers from the city of Aden portends armed confrontations in the city in the coming weeks between the pro-coalition factions.
