Saudi-led coalition seeks to strike local hospitals in Hodeidah

SANAA, Nov. 10 (YPA) – An official source in the ministry of health revealed on Friday that Saudi-led coalition forces seek to bomb local hospitals in Hodeidah province in order to accuse the Yemeni army in western coast.

The official said that media loyal to the coalition claimed that May 22 hospital in Hodeidah was booby-trapped by the army forces.

“These false allegations came from the coalition’s command operation rooms, confirming a malicious intent of the coalition to make Hodeidah’s hospitals as military targets for its air raids,” the official added.

The Saudi-led coalition’s warplanes had targeted the main gate of Al Thawra hospital with an air raid in early August, killing and injuring over 40 people.
