ADEN: Sixty-two injured Yemenis, along with their companions, have left Aden to complete their treatment in Indian hospitals, at the expense of the United Arab Emirates.
The humanitarian gesture is in implementation of the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and the follow-up of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
The UAE is bearing the treatment costs as part of its constant efforts to ease the suffering of Yemeni people, stand with them in their difficult times, and improve their humanitarian conditions and support them against the crimes committed against them by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias.
Wounded Yemenis appreciated the UAE’s humanitarian stance.
The number of injured Yemenis who were treated by UAE reached 11,000 in India, Egypt, Jordan, and Sudan. The UAE has also dispatched medical and relief convoys in support of its brethren in Yemen.
The UAE’s humanitarian and relief programme provides essential food, medicine, and medical supplies to improve the health conditions of Yemeni brothers in coordination with regional and international humanitarian organisations currently on the Yemeni arena.
With every passing day it is increasingly clear that the Iran-backed Houthi militias are bent on scuttling the peace process in Yemen. The international community needs to address more assertively the deliberate and systematic violations of the Stockholm Agreement by the Houthis.
Singapore investors are betting big on Indian commercial real estate and other new sunshine sectors, including logistics and warehousing. Major Singapore-based private equity firms are funnelling billions of dollars into the country’s real estate sector, particularly in South Indian cities.
Repeated violations by the Iran-backed Houthi militias are threatening the overall political process in Yemen, but it is good that the Saudi-led Arab Coalition remains focused on spreading justice and upholding the legitimacy in Yemen.
