Leadership of 48th Hospital in Sanaa condemns coalition airstrikes on hospital

SANAA, Jan. 13 (YPA) – The leadership of the 48th Hospital in Sanaa province on Thursday condemned the Saudi-led coalition’s airstrikes on the hospital’s building, which left four hospital staff wounded and damage to the building.

This came in a statement, issued by the hospital’s leadership, in which it denounced the blatant, repeated, and systematic attack on the hospital and the targeting of medical and ambulance crews while carrying out their duty to receive and treat patients.

The statement considered the targeting of the hospital “a full-fledged crime” and a violation and flagrant defiance of international and humanitarian norms and laws that criminalize targeting health facilities and civilian objects.
