In Yemen, as many as 15 people were killed Monday after a U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrike destroyed a hospital supported by Doctors Without Borders. At least another 19 people were wounded, including three foreign doctors, when the airstrike hit Abs Hospital in Yemen’s northern Hajjah province. Among the victims were three Yemeni Doctors Without Borders staff members. Monday’s attack on the hospital marks at least the fourth time U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrikes have hit a Doctors Without Borders-supported hospital in Yemen during the 17-month conflict. This is a local resident reacting to the airstrike.
Resident: “What did they find at the hospital other than the sick and the wounded and the injured? There is nothing here except patients and medical staff, Doctors Without Borders and Yemeni doctors.”
