The health conditions in Yemen's Saada province is very critical due to repeated attacks by Saudi-led coalitions on hospitals and clinics in the province.

Iran Press/Middle East: Existing statistics suggest that more than 30 hospitals and clinics in Sadah province have been destroyed or seriously damaged in the Saudi-led coalition airstrike.

On the other hand, hospitals or clinics that have survived the attacks are also facing a severe shortage of medicines, doctors, medical staff, and equipment because of the siege of Yemen by the Saudi regime and his mercenaries and allies, Iran Press reported.

However, the number of wounded and patients coming to these centers is increasing daily because of the attacks. This is why these centers are no longer able to provide optimal services to the injured and patients.

Backed by the United States, the Saudi regime and some of its Arab allies invaded Yemen in 2015 and have enforced a strict blockade of the country by ground, air, and sea ever since.

The Saudi war has impacted over seven million children in Yemen who now face a serious threat of famine, according to UNICEF figures.

Over 6,000 children have either been killed or sustained serious injuries since 2015, the UN children’s agency said. The humanitarian situation in the country has also been exacerbated by outbreaks of cholera, polio, and measles

The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the war has claimed more than 91,000 lives over the past four and a half years.
