Yemen conflict: MSF to withdraw staff from 6 northern hospitals

More places in desperate need of medical personnel, losing the invaluable services of MSF. As well as helpless patients, 3 doctors were killed in these war crimes.

The charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) says it will withdraw staff from six hospitals in north Yemen after a Saudi-coalition air strike hit one of its buildings, killing 19 people.

Monday's attack was the fourth and deadliest on MSF's facilities in Yemen.

The French charity said in a statement it was "unsafe for both patients and staff" in the Saada and Hajjah governorates to continue.

They said hospitals will remain staffed by local volunteers.

MSF said air strikes have continued even though they have shared the satellite co-ordinates of their hospitals with the parties involved in the conflict.
