On Sunday, most of the residents of Yemen witnessed the third day without internet after the telecom infrastructure was damaged because of the air strikes on the Red Sea city of Hodeidah.

On Sunday, most of the residents of Yemen witnessed the third day without internet after the telecom infrastructure was damaged because of the air strikes on the Red Sea city of Hodeidah.

A resident of the capital city, Sanaa, shared the ordeal and said that at the exchange office, he was not able to take money from his relative, residing in Saudi Arabia, due to the ongoing outage.

He further said that “We don’t know what to do as we depend on the expatriates for basic needs like food and water.”

The conflicts in the country have divided it between internationally-recognised government areas based in the southern city of Aden and the Iran-backed Houthi group in Sanaa.

Since the war in the country has commenced, it has killed more than tens of thousands of people and has displaced millions of others. It has also collapsed the economy and has pushed the nation towards the brink of famine and poverty.

On Sunday, the ministry of communications assured that the government has been trying to re-connect the area which has lost the internet connections; this can be done with the help of the undersea cables in Aden. However, some areas of Yemen have internet services while others have access to satellite internet.

Some of the residents have to deal with problems in sending and receiving money from family members; on the other hand, some have to switch to television for entertainment purposes.

For now, there is no information about when the repairs in Hodeidah will take place, but the CEOs of the telecommunication companies has said that the repairing would be started as soon as the strikes are stopped.
