On February 19, two conjoined boys who were born in Yemen and were in dire need of treatment abroad died. The two-week-old boys Abd al-Khaleq and Abd al-Rahim were born in Yemen’s capital Sanaa but according to doctors, their condition was not good so it was suggested to be taken to abroad due to devastating health conditions in Yemen.
But the airport was closed to civilian flights in 2015 in Sanaa so as a result, the babies died due to the unavailability of timely treatment.
