US backed coalitioin bombs another hospital

Shadowproof - Coalition forces, led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the United States, bombed a hospital in Yemen operated by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). It was the second MSF hospital in a war zone to be attacked this month.

As the New York Times reported, the hospital in Saada was hit by “at least two airstrikes around 11 pm Monday.” The group’s head of mission, Hassan Boucenine, told the newspaper the hospital “collapsed.”

Boucenine informed the Times that 12 patients and staff members had been in the hospital at the time of the bombing. Each was able to evacuate once there was a “lull between the two airstrikes. However, “one patient received burns and scratches, and another was in critical condition because of the hurried evacuation.”
