This is one of the few aid shipments allowed by the Saudi-led alliance. Saudi Arabia has imposed almost full air embargo on Yemen. The plane also evacuated 62 citizens from Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries to Russia during its return.
On Tuesday, 22 civilians lost their life in Al-Muzaa area in Saada as a result of an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition air power.

Spokesman for the movement Mohammed Abdul Salam said that this crime is part of a series of crimes committed against the Yemeni people under the disgraceful complicity of the United Nations. From its side, the United Nations condemned the air strike and expressed its sorrow for civilian casualties.
