“The agreement with the World food program came to solve the problem of arriving the spoiled food in Yemen,” Tawoos said.
He also added that aid would be delivered in cash to citizens who buy whatever food they want.
He said that the Yemeni people have difficult circumstances because of the blockade and aggression, So that assistance represents nothing and reaches only less than 7 million beneficiaries in the north and south.
Tawoos said he hopes that the aid will reach as many Yemeni as possible. He explained that the aid does not cover all the needs of citizens, but only the basics.
“The suspension of aid by UN organizations is a pressure sheet that has been used by aggression since last year, So this indicates the brutality of the countries of aggression,” he said.
