Joint press release

For immediate release

Oxfam, Care, Handicap International, Mercy Corps, Intersos and Save the Children condemn the Saudi-led coalition airstrike today on a hospital supported by Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in Abs, in Hajja governorate.

The six agencies call for an independent investigation on this attack, the fourth of its kind on an MSF-supported facility in Yemen in less than a year. It comes just two days after 10 children were killed and 28 were injured in another airstrike on a school, in the Saada Governorate.

Twelve aid agencies today called on the Saudi-led coalition to lift restrictions on Yemeni airspace in order to allow for the reopening of the country’s main airport, Sana’a International, and to allow humanitarian flights to resume.

A spokesperson on behalf of the agencies said: “The closure of Yemen’s main airport, which serves much of the country, is inexcusable when millions of Yemeni families are in urgent need of life-saving assistance.
