Yemen’s Houthis say Sanaa airport reopen to flights after bombing

The UN envoy for Yemen said the recent escalation was "among the worst" seen in the conflict in years.

The aviation body under Yemen’s Houthi rebel administration said it temporarily reopened Sanaa’s international airport to flights after the Saudi Arabia-led military coalition targeted the area with airstrikes last week.

The authority said in a statement to Houthi-run SABA news agency that “communications and navigation devices” at the airport “have been temporarily repaired.”
