149 Yemenis Killed and Wounded in Saudi-led Attacks on Shada Border District

As a result of the Saudi enemy’s attacks on the border district of Shada in Saada province, about 149 people were killed and injured during the months of January and February, according to medical statistics.

The director of Razih Rural Hospital, Abdullah Musre’a, explained that the number of killed and injured in January of this year reached 83, and in February the number reached 62.

The statistics of the crimes of aggression also increased when three civilians were killed and injured by the Saudi enemy army on the last day of February, bringing the statistics to 149 killed and injured.

The health sector confirmed that this situation during the eight years of aggression burdens the hospital, which mainly suffers from a shortage of equipment, medicines and specialists, in the face of the number of victims and the seriousness of many injuries. These shortages are exacerbated by the blockade.

“Most of the critical cases were referred to the governorates hospitals, while others were referred to the capital’s hospitals due to the lack of some medical services,” the director of Razih Rural Hospital said.

The head of the emergency department at Razih Rural Hospital, Aseel Manea, indicated that Razih Hospital lacks most of the services, including the lack of fluids, an internal specialist, and an orthopedic specialist, in addition to the lack of a central care unit to care for patients.

The difficult road to the center of the province is another obstacle, which leads to additional deaths.

Various areas of the border districts in Saada are subjected to Saudi missiles and artillery shelling on a daily basis, resulting in heavy casualties and material losses.
