Islah gunmen attack al-Thawra Hospital electricity official in Taiz

TAIZ, April 17 (YPA) – The hospital’s electricity official was attacked Friday by guards at the Al-Thawra hospital, which is under the control of the Islah militants in Taiz.

According to medical sources at the hospital, the security  forces of the hospital assaulted the electricity official after he cut  electricity wires from houses and shops adjacent to the hospital.

The sources indicated that the attack on the electricity official was caused by the exploitation of hospital electricity by Islah militants by collecting huge amounts of money from citizens for their own benefit.

Al-Thawra Hospital, which is under the control of Islah militants in Taiz, is suffering from a suffocating fuel crisis, amid the inability of generators to light the hospital.
