US Ally Saudi Arabia Bombs Another “Doctors Without Borders” Hospital

On Tuesday we learn that yet another Doctors Without Borders facility has been bombed, this time in Saada, Yemen. As Reuters reports, Saudi warplanes apparently “destroyed the entire hospital with all that was inside.” Here’s more:

A Yemeni hospital run by medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) was hit by a Saudi-led air strike, the group said on Tuesday, the latest bombing of a civilian target in the seven-month air campaign in Yemen.

 

“MSF facility in Saada Yemen was hit by several air strikes last night with patients and staff inside the facility,” the group said in a tweet on Tuesday.

 

Yemen’s state news agency Saba, run the Iran-allied Houthi group that is the coalition’s enemy, quoted the Heedan hospital director saying that several people were injured in the attack.

 

“The air raids resulted in the destruction of the entire hospital with all that was inside – devices and medical supplies – and the moderate wounding of several people,” Doctor Ali Mughli said.

 

Saba said other air strikes hit a nearby girls school and damaged several civilian homes.

 

It was not immediately possible to confirm that report, and a coalition spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
