A Yemeni family has been reunited in the UAE after enduring 15 years of separation.
The family, who are Jewish, were able to reunite after authorities in the UAE facilitated the travel of family members from Yemen to the country, state news agency Wam reported.
Authorities also made arrangements for other members of the family, who lived in London, to join them in the UAE.
Video footage of the moment they were reunited showed visibly emotional family members meeting for the first time. They expressed their extreme happiness at their reunion after such a long separation, with one female member of the family saying she never thought this day would come.
"It was nothing short of a miracle and the realisation of an impossible dream,” the family members said.
The father of the family said after meeting his children: "I feel as if I were reborn today. I am so happy to have met all my children and grandchildren. I am also overjoyed to be in the UAE.
The family also thanked UAE authorities for facilitating the reunion.
“This is an example of the UAE’s humanitarian approach, as well as of its noble values of tolerance and coexistence," they said.
A delicate peace process under UN auspices is under way in Yemen, which is seeking to end five years of violence in the country.
The conflict has required one of the world’s largest humanitarian responses with the UAE contributing billions of dirhams in aid to the country to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis.
