The operation to evacuate Sri Lankans commenced on April 6, through which a total of 44 were evacuated from the conflict affected zones in Yemen. The first batch of 29 Sri Lankans arrived in the island on April 8.

The evacuated group was transported to the Hodeidah Port city which is located about 222km away from Sana- Yemen’s capital. The group was then transferred to Djibouti onboard a Chinese vessel and from thereon flown to Qatar. They were thereafter flown to Sri Lanka.
