SANA’A: Stuck in war stricken Yemen, 180 Indian nurses on Monday appealed to the Kerala Chief Minister for help. The nurses trapped at Al Kuwait University Hospital of Sana’a have urged instantaneous evacuation.

Informing that their passports are with the hospital authorities and they have not been paid their salaries for more than three months, the nurses stated that now they do not even have the money to travel to the airport.

On Sunday, India evacuated over 670 nationals including 488 from Sana’a by three different Air India flights, taking the total number of Indians rescued from war-destroyed Yemen to about 2,300 after the ‘largest’ evacuation in a day so far from there.

According to the sources, there are around 5, 000 Indians across Yemen, out of which, 1, 000 were women married to Yemeni nationals.

The figure of Indians in Sana’a would be approximately 3,000 while around 554 were in Aden and 298 were in offshore oil fields, sources added.
