Aden: Twenty four injured Yemenis have left Aden to complete their treatment in Indian hospitals, at the expense of the UAE.

The move is part of the UAE's efforts to ease the suffering of Yemeni people, stand with them in their difficult times, improve their humanitarian conditions and support them against the crimes committed by the Iranian-backed Al Houthi militia.

Mohammad Al Shehhi, the Representative of Emirates Red Crescentin Yemen, who, along with his team of volunteers, saw off the injured Yemenis at Aden Airport on Wednesday, said the UAE leadership attaches great importance to the health and well-being of the injured Yemenis.

He wished the injured Yemenis speedy recovery and safe return to their country.

The humanitarian gesture is in implementation of the directives of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and the follow-up of Shaikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the ERC.

Since the start of the war against Yemen by the Al Houthi militia in 2015, the UAE has helped treat thousands of injured Yemenis in the UAE, Egypt, Sudan, India and Jordan.
