MSF scales up medical care near Hodeidah, Yemen

Armed forces loyal to Yemen's President Hadi and supported by the Saudi and Emirati-led coalition (SELC) launched an offensive to take Hodeidah city from Ansar Allah (Houthi) troops on June 13. As fighting moves closer to the city center, MSF is concerned for the safety of some 600,000 people living there. MSF is scaling up medical capacity in the area and warning of the risks to Hodeidah port, a lifeline for humanitarian aid supplies.
