Aid agency Médécins sans Frontières (MSF) has strongly condemned an attack on a facility it supports in northern Yemen.

A projectile hit the Shiara Hospital, killing at least four people and wounding ten, the agency reports. Three of those injured are said to be MSF staff. Two are believed to be in a critical condition.


“Third severe incident”

The strike occurred in Razeh, in the northern province of Sadaa. Its origin is unclear, although there are reports of planes flying overhead at the time.

We strongly condemn this and we reiterate to all parties to the conflict that patients & medical facilities must be respected.

According to MSF, this is the third “severe incident” on one of its clinics in three months. It says it has alerted Yemen’s warring factions of its GPS coordinates and has called for its health facilities to be respected.
