MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) announced Tuesday that Alert Level 3 (Voluntary Repatriation) has been raised in Yemen due to the ongoing conflict in the country cause by rebels and terrorists.

“Alert level 3 has been raised due to the threat posed by the continued occupation of the capital city Sana’a by Houthi rebels, and the attacks against civilians by separatists and the members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP),” DFA said in a statement.

“Under Alert Level 3, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) imposes absolute deployment ban, and Filipinos who are already in Yemen are strongly urged to return to the Philippines,” it said.

A Crisis Management Team (CMT) from the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia has been re-deployed to assist Filipinos who wish to be repatriated.
