DUBAI: United Nations envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar announced his resignation on Wednesday, according to a statement on his official Facebook page.

Benomar, a veteran Moroccan diplomat, helped broker a 2011 transition plan in Yemen which unraveled and culminated in three weeks of a Saudi-led bombing campaign against Iran-allied Houthi rebels.
