Yemen: Houthis Indiscriminately Bomb Aden Neighborhood

Over the course of just a few hours yesterday, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams in the southern Yemeni city of Aden received 150 people wounded in reprisal attacks by Houthi fighters, among them women, children, and the elderly.  Of the 150 people, 42 were dead on arrival at MSF’s hospital in Aden. 

The Houthis shelled the crowded  neighborhood of Dar Saad, where many displaced people live.

While MSF teams in Aden are overwhelmed they continue to operate an emergency surgical unit in Aden. The teams report an urgent need for medicines, equipment and additional medical staff.
