Airstrikes by Saudi-led warplanes on northern Yemen have killed five people, including an ambulance driver working for Doctors Without Borders (MSF), and wounded 35 others, the relief agency said Friday.
The strikes hit three villages late Thursday in Yemen’s northern Saada province, said MSF spokeswoman Malak Shaher.
The ambulance driver, who worked for MSF and the Jamhouri public hospital in Saada, was hit on his way to one of the bombing sites, she told AFP, without elaborating.
The villages hit were Dhahyan, Baqim and Jawf, she said.
“Air strikes in 3 villages in Saada left 5 dead and 35 injured. MSF & Ministry of health ambulance driver was killed,” MSF Yemen wrote on its Twitter account.
Earlier this month, MSF said one of its clinics in Saada was targeted by strikes that killed at least four people.
MSF in December accused the coalition of bombing its clinic in Taez, southwest Yemen, wounding nine people including two staff members.
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
