    MSF run hospital hit by rocket in Yemen

    Jan 10, Sanaa: At least four people were killed when a missile hit a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in northern Yemen.

    MSF said the strike in Saada province on Sunday, a Houthi rebel movement stronghold, had injured a further 10 people.

    In a series of tweets, MSF said it was the third "serious incident" in as many months affecting its facilities in the country.

    A statement by MSF on Twitter said about the incident in the town of Razeh said, "We strongly condemn this and we reiterate to all parties to the conflict that patients & medical facilities must be respected."

    The organisation did not say who was behind the attack, but that "planes were seen flying over the facility at the time".

    Raquel Ayora, MSF Director of Operations said that all parties to the conflict, including the Saudi-led coalition , are regularly informed of the GPS coordinates of the medical sites where MSF works.

    Atcording to the media reports,There is no way that anyone with the capacity to carry out an airstrike or launch a rocket would not have known that the Shiara Hospital was a functioning health facility providing critical services and supported by MSF.
