Saudi-led coalition bombs Yemen hospital

Saudi-led coalition air strikes on a Yemen hospital killed six people on Monday, health sources said, less than two days after similar raids killed 10 children and sparked international concern.

Paris-based Doctors Without Borders (MSF) tweeted that the Abs hospital in the rebel-held northwestern province of Hajja “was targeted by air strikes today at 15:45 Yemen time ”.

The Arab coalition has been battling Houthi rebels in Yemen since March 2015 in support of Yemen’s government, after the rebels seized Sanaa before expanding to other parts of the country.

Earlier this month, the coalition acknowledged “shortcomings” in two out of eight cases it has investigated of UN-condemned air strikes on civilian targets in Yemen.

On Monday it promised to probe another attack that MSF said killed 10 children this weekend at a school in the rebel-held northern province of Saada.

The strikes in Abs on Monday killed six people and wounded 20, according to Ayman Mazkour, who heads the health sector in Hajja.
