  • Published on Aug 15, 2016
    The death toll from Saudi airstrikes on a Yemeni hospital in Hajjah province has risen to 15. Yemeni media say 20 other people have been injured including foreign medical staff of the hospital. Because of consecutive strikes by Saudi warplanes, the ambulances have failed to reach the area. The hospital is run by medical charity Doctors Without Borders. Earlier on Monday, the United Nations condemned Saudi Arabia’s bombing of a Yemeni school as a violation of the international humanitarian law and human rights. The airstrike which took place on Saturday killed 10 children dead and wounded 28 others. Since the beginning of the Saudi war on Yemen in 2015, large numbers of civilian facilities have been targeted. Nearly 9600 Yemenis, mostly civilians, have been killed in the Saudi war.
