Jeddah – The operation to evacuate citizens, other nationals, diplomats, and international officials from Sudan was carried out by the Royal Saudi Naval Forces (RSNF), according to the foreign ministry.
The operation was carried out by the Royal Saudi Naval Forces with the assistance of other military branches.
According to the ministry, 66 people were evacuated from Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Tunisia, Pakistan, India, Bulgaria, the Philippines, Canada, and Burkina Faso. There were 91 Saudi nationals that were evacuated.
Both residents of other countries and citizens of Saudi Arabia have successfully landed in Jeddah. According to the Ministry, this resulted from the execution of the leadership of the Kingdom’s instructions.
The batches were welcomed by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Eng. Waleed Al-Khereiji when they arrived in Jeddah at King Faisal Naval Base.
Al-Khereiji claimed that the evacuation’s long journey, which began in Khartoum and involved the assistance of several government organisations in the Kingdom, began in Khartoum and ended at Port Sudan.
He confirmed that the Ministry of Defence played a crucial part in carrying out this plan.
We all rejoice over the homecoming of our boys as well as the sons of friendly and benevolent nations to Saudi Arabia, which occurred on the same day as Eid Al-Fitr.
In order to facilitate the departure of the foreign nationals to their home countries, Saudi Arabia has endeavoured to meet all of their basic necessities.
Prince Faisal Bin Farhan, the foreign minister of Kuwait, spoke on the phone with Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
Sheikh Salem expressed his sincere appreciation on the safe passage of Saudi ships carrying residents of 11 nations from Sudan to Jeddah.
Sheikh Salem conveyed to the Saudi foreign minister Kuwait’s gratitude and appreciation for the Kingdom’s efforts to secure the evacuation of Kuwaiti nationals from Sudan.
The start of plans to evacuate Saudi citizens as well as a number of other nationals from Sudan to Jeddah by sea on five Saudi ships was announced earlier on Saturday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The crew of Saudia Airlines was on board the second Saudi ship when it was attacked in Khartoum Airport.
It is significant that at least 400 people have died in Sudan after a week of combat between two factions of the country’s military leadership.
