Another Doctors Without Borders Hospital Hit By Airstrikes

A Yemeni hospital run by medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) was hit by a Saudi-led air strike.

    “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 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.

Human rights groups have expressed concern at the mounting deaths caused by the aerial bombing and ground fighting raging across the impoverished country.
It is the second time this month that an MSF facility has been hit. Its hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz was bombed by U.S. forces on Oct. 3.
