The Ministry of Information of the government of Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi has condemned the UN’s attempt to transport journalists to Yemen in order to cover the humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The Saudi-backed government blamed the Houthi-Saleh alliance as well as journalists for providing a coverage about the ongoing humanitarian crisis mostly caused by the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen.
“The Ministry of Information of the Republic of Yemen has expressed regret over an attempt by the United Nations’ Mission to transport journalists into Yemeni territory via UN planes, said the ministry in a release issued on Tuesday.
Houthi-Saleh’s rebel militias have been propagating their destructive project through humanitarian stories, manipulating the catastrophic conditions of the Yemeni people who have been experiencing difficult conditions since triggering the coup and western media finds fatty stories to present to its audience,” the SPA reported.
The Saudi-controlled Hadi government and the Saudi media de-facto demanded from jouranalists to ignore the humanitarian crisis and destruction caused by the Saudi-led coalition’s actions.
“It confirmed that foreign journalists should be careful on their security and safety to avoid kidnapping by armed groups and then paying ransom for freeing, a matter re-financing terrorism, an issue is not guaranteed by UN agencies,” the SPA added.
