An airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition hit a hospital in central Yemen on Monday, a state news agency reported. The alleged incident comes a day after Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said a missile killed four people at one of its clinics in the country. The clinic which came under fire is in the Swadi district of Yemen’s southern Bayda province, according to Saba news agency.
The news agency is run by the Houthi movement, which seized the Yemeni capital Sana’a last year and is being targeted by the Saudi-led bombardment. An official from the exiled Yemeni government in the southern port of Aden confirmed to Reuters that the clinic was hit.
However, he stressed that the facility, which according to the official was used by Houthi fighters as a base, was only damaged, and not destroyed. Several Houthi militiamen were killed in the airstrike, the unnamed official added. Medical facilities have come under fire on several occasions during the Yemeni conflict. FULL REPORT
