 Yemeni Hospital Hit by Saudi-Led Coalition's Airstrikes

The international humanitarian aid organization said that the Saudi-led coalition's airstrikes have hit a Yemeni hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders).

A "MSF facility in Saada, Yemen, was hit by several airstrikes last night with patients and staff inside the facility," the charity group tweeted. Sadaa is the largest city in Sadaa province, northwestern Yemen. According to Yemeni Saba news, the target was Heedan hospital. Several people were injured in the airstrikes.

"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," RT.com quoted Heedan hospital director Ali Mughli as saying.

The Saudi-led coalition launched its anti-Houthi campaign in March 2015 in response to the Houthi movement capturing large territories of Yemen, including the capital city Sanaa, and the country's second largest city Aden.

The Saudi-led campaign has been receiving much criticism over civilian deaths of late. Over 2,300 civilians have been killed in the campaign in the last six months, according to the UN.
