The resumption of flights from Sana'a made possible by the UN-led truce is a promising step for Yemenis who have suffered in isolation for too long. All parties should commit to further progress by unblocking roads around Taiz & areas where Yemenis urgently need humanitarian aid.
We are encouraged by the commercial flight between Sana’a and Amman today, the first since 2016: an important step towards advancing broader peace efforts. We urge all parties to continue to shape a brighter future for Yemenis, including opening Taiz roads.state.gov/welcoming-the-resu…

Through our partnership with @SpaceX, @USAIDUkraine delivered thousands of Starlink terminals to keep essential & emergency services in Ukraine online despite Russian destruction of existing internet infrastructure. Thank you to @SpaceX for the generous contribution.
Can you see a Starlink? But it's here. While providers are repairing cable damages, Gostomel's humanitarian headquarter works via the Starlink. Thanks to @SpaceX and @USAID for supporting Ukraine with providing Starlinks, so Ukrainians can stay in touch with their families.
