Victims of Saudi-led attack on Al-Hudaydah hit 52

Tehran, Yemeni sources announced in a latest report that the number of victims of the Saudi-led coalition's attack on a hospital and fish sellers market in Al-Hudaydah Port reached 52.

Concurrent with Saudi-led coalition's attack on Al-Thawra Hospital, fish sellers market was also bombed, as a result of which 40 civilians were also wounded.

Given the scale of the attacks, casualties are projected to rise.

Earlier, Yemeni local resources announced that Al-Hudaydah Hospital in west of Yemen came under attack by the Saudi fighters, which killed 26 and wounded 35.

Yemeni Health Ministry spokesman Yousof al-Hazeri said that ambulances and rescue and relief automobiles were deliberately targeted by the 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.
