500 more Indians airlifted from strife torn Yemen

Evacuation efforts of Indian nationals from strife torn Yemen are going on on war footing.
About 2500 people, including over 200 foreigners from more than 20 countries, have been evacuated through air and sea routes so far.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson said in a tweet that 488 Indians were airlifted from Sana’a on Sunday which is the largest evacuation so far.

Air India conducted three successful flights out of Sana’a.

Meanwhile, INS Sumitra moved 203 people from Ash Shihr, out of which 182 are Indians and rest are from 7 other countries.

The ship is headed towards Djibouti.

Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh is overseeing the massive evacuation operation from Djibouti.

Official sources expressed hope to complete the evacuation operation in the next few days.

A no-fly zone enforced in Yemeni airspace by international coalition has made it difficult to evacuate Indians by air. India has been requesting Saudi Arabia to allow aerial sorties to Sana’s on daily basis.
