(ANTIMEDIA) A Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) hospital in Yemen was hit by a series of Saudi-led airstrikes on Monday night, the organisation tweeted Tuesday morning. MSF reported that patients and staff were inside the facility when the bombing took place. At least one person was injured and is in stable condition.
MSF spokesman Hassan Boucenine stated the attacks on the hospital in the Yemeni governorate of Saada “must have been deliberate,” as it was only two weeks ago that the group provided the coordinates for their Saada location to the Saudi-led coalition.
“We give GPS positions, all the positions, of our hospital to the coalition head and we renew them every month,” he said, adding that “the latest one was done two week [sic] ago.”
Boucenine said it is inconceivable that the military didn’t “know it [was] an MSF hospital.” The spokesman went on to add that “There is no reason – ever – to commit a war crime. To target a hospital. There cannot be any good reason.”
The airstrikes also mark the one week anniversary of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announcing it approved an $11.25 billion deal to sell combat ships to Saudi Arabia.
