The Saudi Air Force’s indiscriminate airstrikes over the Saada, Hajja, and Sanaa governorates of northern Yemen have forced the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) medical staff to abandon their hospitals due to safety concerns.

The official twitter account for the MSF stressed that they were not satisfied nor reassured by the Saudi-led Coalition’s statement regarding Saturday’s hospital attack which killed 10 civilians.
This statement from the MSF comes shortly after the Saudi-led Coalition launched over 60 airstrikes in a 24 hour span across the northern Yemen countryside.
Despite these attacks, several brave medical personnel will remain to help run these make-shift hospitals in northern Yemen.
The Saudi Air Force has attacked MSF hospitals in northern Yemen at least three times in the last ten months, sparking outrage among several NGOs and human rights groups.
Saudi Arabia alleges that they do not target civil institutions nor civilian neighborhoods, despite numerous allegations from the United Nations and monitoring groups.
