Omani medical aid shipment arrived in Sanaa lately

SANAA (Debriefer)--Omani and Iranian medical aid arrived in Yemen's capital of Sanaa which is controlled by the Houthi Group, health minister in the Houthi salvation government, Taha Al-Mutawakil, said on Tuesday.
The Iranian medical aid remained stuck for more than three months in Oman, he said, accusing the UN of failing to help bring in humanitarian aid to face coronavirus in the country.
The aid included modern medical equipment, ventilators and medicines, he said, according to a statement carried by the Sanaa-based Saba news agency.
The minister called on Arab and Muslim countries to break the blockade on Yemen and to deliver aid to the Yemeni people who now lack necessary fuel to operate hospitals as a Saudi-led coalition is preventing fuel ships from entering Hodeidah seaport.
The coalition has been fighting the Houthi Group in support of the internationally recognised government since March 2015. It has been holding 20 fuel ships in the Red Sea for months, the group says.
The minister revealed that 93% of the healthcare sector's equipment in Houthi-run regions has become outdated after six years of aggression and blockade on Yemen.
Last week, the group announced the arrival of an Omani medical aid shipment in Sanaa.
