Saudi attack on Yemeni hospital kills 26

Tehran, Arab coalition spearheaded by Saudi Arabia launched an attack on a residential area and a hospital in Al-Hudaydah city on Thursday in west of the country, killing 26 and wounding 35 others.

According to Al-Massira TV Network, the hospital located in the strategic region of Al-Hudaydah controlled by Ansar al-Allah was bombarded by Saudi fighters.

Al-Hudaydah Port is the only crossing for humanitarian aid to the war-torn country, as 70 percent of foodstuff and pharmaceutical aid enter the country via the port.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for the past three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
