A Yemeni hospital run by medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) was hit by Saudi warplanes, in a fresh bombing of a civilian target in the seven-month Saudi-led war on Yemen, the MSF group said on Tuesday.
“MSF facility in Saada Yemen was hit by several airstrikes last night with patients and staff inside the facility,” the group said in a tweet.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 215 days now to restore power to fugitive President Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Saudi aggression has so far killed at least 6,579 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Yemeni national military, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
