While they are glad to be at home with their loved ones in Turkey, Turkish citizens, who were recently evacuated from Yemen, also wish peace for the Yemeni locals they left behind.

Speaking after arriving at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport from Yemen via Djibouti late Saturday, the 55 Turkish citizens who came back also spoke about their harrowing experience of witnessing bombing campaigns in the strife-ridden country.

"We are coming from Yemeni seaport city of Aden, where we were exposed to heavy bombing…it was a very difficult time for us," Ali Usumus told.

"Yemen and Aden are in ruin. Local people there are in a tough situation," Usumus added. He was glad to have made it safely back home to his loved ones.

Also, there were many families at the airport who were overjoyed to see their loved ones return home safely.

"We have just come together, but it was horrible waiting for her with no information at all," Nebi Ocal said after he welcomed his daughter at the airport.
