Khawaja was heading to Cairo when the explosion took place. She is now receiving medical treatment and is in stable condition.
 
Before leaving her hotel to the airport, Kahwaja tweeted: “I did my last interview about the humanitarian situation in Yemen. I have never been used to the tragedy that this beautiful country has. The responsibility weighed on my shoulders every time, all platforms in the world are nothing but insignificant to tell the suffering of Yemenis. I wish for you a better reality that you really deserve."
 
It is worth mentioning that Yara Khawaja is the daughter of Lebanese lawmaker Mohamad Khawaja.
 
At least 13 people were killed and dozens more wounded in an attack on Aden airport on Wednesday moments after a plane landed carrying a newly formed Saudi-backed cabinet for government-held parts of Yemen.

Hours after the attack, a second explosion was heard around Aden's Maasheq presidential palace where the cabinet members including Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik, as well as the Saudi ambassador to Yemen, had been taken to safely, residents and local media said.
