Yemeni cancer clinic hit by heavy weapons

by MCR Correspondent

Medical Charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) have announced that a cancer clinic in the Yemeni city of Taiz was hit by heavy weapons on 24th October, 2020.

The organisation stated this on 26th October, 2020 adding that one staff member was injured during the incident.

MSF said, “Patients were relocated and non-essential staff sent away after the attack on the clinic” which is adjacent to a hospital that the charity supports.

“There was also shelling near another hospital which receives its support, with two civilians injured.” MSF added

The Saudi-backed Yemeni government blamed the attack on the Houthi movement, which has been fighting it since 2014.

The Houthis seized Yemen’s capital Sanaa and much of the north in 2014. Fighting escalated in March 2015 when the Saudi-led coalition intervened to restore the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
