"The parties to the conflict have the responsibility to ensure the protection of civilians and their access to humanitarian relief, including through the use of airspace and airport". Current death toll is more than 10.000 people, while humanitarian disaster escalated with a starvation and the cholera outbreak of more than 300.000 recorded cases of infection. Initial reports issued by the Saudi Press Agency said the soldiers sustained "minor injuries" following an emergency landing.
WAM said the helicopter crash happened in Yemen's southern Shabwa province where USA airstrikes have targeted Yemen's local al-Qaida branch.
The jihadists are thought to have moved farther south into neighbouring Abyan province.
The coalition last month banned a United Nations flight carrying humanitarian aid workers and journalists from taking off from Djibouti to Sanaa.
"I have no information on the incident, so I can not confirm or deny", he told Anadolu Agency.
