Iran PressMiddle East: In an interview with Iranpress correspondent in Sana'a, Motahar Al-Mouroni stated that the war of the Saudi coalition with Yemen has caused serious damage to the health and treatment sectors of this country, and for its reconstruction, a lot of effort and adequate budget are needed, and new facilities are needed.
