Sana’a Warns of Complete Halt to Health Sector

The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Sana’a government, Dr. Youssef Al-Hadhri, warned of the total suspension of all health facilities due to the lack of fuel, as the Saudi-led coalition prevents fuel vessels from reaching the port of Hodeidah for more than four months.

“A number of hospitals are expected to be closed during the coming period due to the oil derivatives crisis,” Al-Hadhri said.

“International organizations do not pay serious attention to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and are only concerned with collecting funds,” he added.

The health spokesman pointed out that more than 400 governmental and private hospitals in the republic suffer from the oil derivatives crisis.

The Public Health Office in Hajjah province had announced earlier that the provision of medical services at the Martyr Dr. Yasser Wathhab Hospital, in Khairan Muharraq district, has stopped after fuel ran out.
