Civil war has ravaged Yemen since early 2015

YEMEN-CONFLICT

The four soldiers died when the helicopter crashed in the southern province of Shabwa following a technical problem, the UAE military said in statement carried by the country's official WAM news agency.

It said the airport remained closed "due to concerns for the safety of civilian travel and commercial flights, as well as the smuggling of weapons by the Houthis".

He further called on the worldwide community to open Sana'a airport as soon as possible, because the 30 million Yemeni citizens are deprived of their travel rights through the capital airport.

Shabwa has seen US airstrikes targeting Yemen's local branch of al-Qaida amid the Saudi-led war.

The coalition has been airstriking Shiite Houthi group across Yemen on a daily basis since March 26, 2015, when Hadi fled to the Saudi capital Riyadh to take refuge.

State media in the United Arab Emirates say four UAE soldiers have been killed in a helicopter crash in Yemen.


Those people also face a deadly cholera outbreak and looming starvation.

The Ministry of Public Health and Population issued statistics showing that 11,250 patients have died because they had not be able to travel overseas for seeking live-saving worldwide medical treatment due to a Saudi-led aggression coalition air blockade.

The pilot made an emergency landing in a government-held area, "resulting in minor injuries to the crew".

Earlier this month, UAE-trained Yemeni special forces backed by the United States launched a major operation against al-Qaeda in Shabwa, driving it out of most of the province.

"I have no information on the incident, so I can not confirm or deny", he told Anadolu Agency.
