Sushma Swaraj Says Not Possible To Rescue Anyone From War Torn Yemen At This Stage

Published on 17 August, 2016 at 3:40 pm By

Following an appeal by social activist Kundan Srivastava to rescue a woman trapped in Yemen, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted that it was impossible to do so at this stage.

Srivastava, who reached out to the woman after watching the video, wrote on his Facebook page that she is an Indian from Hyderabad named Sabiha, who went to Yemen 10 years ago with her husband and settled there.

Srivastava, who shared the video on his Facebook page, wrote that a few days ago Sabiha’s husband divorced her and left her to fend for herself in the war-torn nation with their four children. “They have nothing to eat, nothing to survive,” writes Srivastava.

Following his appeal, Swaraj took to Twitter to address the matter. In a series of four tweets she explained why it was not possible to evacuate the woman at this stage.

Responding to Srivastava’s tweet, MoS V.K. Singh too pointed out that the Indian government evacuated close to 5000 people from the war-torn country during Operation Raahat in 2015, in what is considered one of the biggest humanitarian operations of independent India, asking how this woman could be left behind.

 


Due to the ongoing strife in the country, the Indian government shifted the Indian Embassy out of Yemen to Djibouti in the Horn of Africa.

In response to one of Swaraj’s tweets, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi requested that India can take Saudi Arabia’s help to evacuate the woman. It should be noted here that the woman is heard appealing to Owaisi in the video.
