Amidst chaos and violence in Yemen, India is successfully evacuating many people from Yemen.

The Indian nationals primarily included nurses and workers. Most of the evacuees were from Kerala.

Yemen is witnessing internal conflicts between several different groups. The main fight is between the supporters of their exiled President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, and allies of Zaidi Shia known as Houthis. According to the UN, the two weeks of chaos in Yemen has killed many civilians and children. Thousands of people have been wounded over.

India is uninterruptedly putting efforts to bring back Indians stranded in the regions. The rescue operation is led by India’s Minister of State External Affairs, General V K Singh, who also reached Djibouti, Africa to oversee the evacuation operation launched by the government.
