Sana’a Hospitals warn of stopping medical services

The main hospitals in the capital Sana’a warned, on Thursday, of stopping the health services due to lack of oil derivatives.

Al-Thawra Model General Hospital Authority in the capital Sana’a  launched a distress call to provide fuel to save the lives of patients in all departments.

In a statement, the authority warned against stopping its services, especially in the care, operations, emergency and dialysis departments, due to the lack of fuel as a result of maritime piracy and the continued detention of oil derivative ships by the Saudi-led coalition forces.

The statement indicated that the authority depends entirely on electric generators, and that it is unable to provide diesel to run the generators, stressing that the acts of marine piracy on fuel ships and their seizure will lead to a health disaster.

The hospital called on the international community, the United Nations and humanitarian organizations to intervene quickly to lift the siege and put pressure on the countries of the Saudi coalition to allow the entry of oil derivative ships to the port of Hodeidah, in order to avoid an imminent humanitarian disaster.

For his part, the Republican Teaching Hospital Authority in the capital Sana’a warned against stopping its services due to the depletion of fuel due to acts of maritime piracy and the continued detention of oil derivatives ships and their entry to Hodeidah port.

The Hospital indicated in a statement that the continuing acts of maritime piracy and abusive practices by the Saudi coalition countries and preventing the entry of fuel ships to the port of Hodeida will lead to a humanitarian disaster.

The statement called on the United Nations, the international community, and humanitarian organizations to shoulder their moral and humanitarian responsibilities and work to lift the blockade, release fuel ships, and stop the war and siege imposed on the Yemeni people.
