    New Delhi: India readied to wind up its massive evacuation operations in Yemen as 1,000 of its nationals were being flown home on Tuesday night. India also helped pull out 232 people from 26 countries from the strife-torn Gulf nation.

    In a series of tweets, external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin announced: "We will end our air evacuation efforts from Sana'a tomorrow, 8th April. All who want to avail should leave tomorrow."

    In more tweets, he announced: "A thousand coming back tonight to India, if all goes well. 5 flights planned from Djibouti to India carrying those evacuated from Yemen."

    "232 persons from 26 countries evacuated by India from Yemen. Efforts continuing."

    Evacuation efforts in Sana'a were successful with three Air India flights taking off from the Yemeni capital with 600 passengers.

    The spokesperson also retweeted German envoy Michael Steiner's 'thank you' tweet: "India helped evacuate also Germans out of Yemen. Thank you India!"

    He also said India has accepted "Pakistan's offer to fly back from Karachi by special plane 11 Indians evacuated by Pakistani naval ship from Yemen".
