“Al-Wadiah is the only functioning crossing point between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The import of goods has decreased by 25% since the beginning of the aggression, which is a record over the past 40 years,” Al-Shami told Sputnik Arabic.
Al-Shami added that Saudi Arabia continues to carry out air strikes on hospitals and humanitarian structures, completely destroying them and rendering them useless.
“Over 60% of our humanitarian structures have been destroyed across the main regions of the country, which resulted in a dramatic deterioration of the healthcare situation. Moreover, the country’s water sources have been contaminated resulting in various epidemics and diseases,” the spokesperson pointed out.
Al-Shami demanded that the international organizations and international community must immediately help to end this blockade and open land, sea and air routes in Yemen in order to fix the acute shortages of food and medicine in the country.
