The flight is part of the colation’s humanitarian efforts, he stressed, while accusing the Iran-backed Al Houthi militias of committing a grave crime against migrants in Sanaa.

Earlier on Tuesday, Human Rights organisations held the Al Houthis responsible for starting the March 7 blaze that killed dozens of migrants at a holding facility in the capital.

Scores of migrants burned to death in Yemen, after Al Houthi militia launched unidentified projectiles into an immigration detention centre in Sanaa, causing a fire.

Inmates — most of them Ethiopian migrants — had been protesting against overcrowding when camp guards rounded up hundreds of them into a hangar and fired two projectiles into the building.

Hundreds of injured inmates were being treated in hospitals in Sanaa, where Al Houthis’ heavy security presence posed problems for humanitarian agencies.
