Saudi jets hit Yemen's cholera treatment center

 

 

As Yemen is struggling with a cholera epidemic, Saudi warplanes have reportedly stricken health center treating cholera patients in the impoverished country’s extreme northwest.

The attack killed and injured a number of people at the facility in the Sa’ada Province, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported, citing the province’s health authority.

The epidemic has claimed the lives of 605 Yemenis, 40 percent of whom were children.

UN envoy to Yemen Ismail OuldCheikh Ahmed said on Tuesday that only “less than 45 percent” of medical facilities in the country were functioning.
