Muscat (WAF): Up to 50 wounded Houthis fighters will be allowed -by the Saudi-led Coalition- to be evacuated from Yemen to Oman this month, a statement by the UK’s Foreign Office said.
The statement came after British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt visited Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
“Coalition forces will now permit the UN to oversee a Houthi medical evacuation, including up to 50 wounded fighters, to Oman, ahead of another proposed round of peace talks in Sweden later this month”, a statement said.
The medical evacuation is yet “Subject to final reassurances” according to the Foreign Office.
