Fuel Shortage Shuts Down Largest Hospital in Yemen’s Taiz

SANAA (Anadolu) – A fuel crisis caused by a Saudi-led blockade has forced the largest hospital in Yemen’s central Taiz province to stop operations on Sunday, according to the hospital.
In a statement, al-Thawra General Hospital said fuel shortage has caused all hospital’s sections to shut down.
“The lives of patients at the hospital are at risk,” the hospital warned.
Al-Thawra hospital runs on fuel donations from UN agencies and international organizations, in addition to fuel shipments from the local authorities.
Saudi Arabia launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in collaboration with its Arab allies and with arms and logistics support from the US and other Western states.
The objective was to reinstall the Riyadh-friendly regime of Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and crush the Ansarullah resistance movement, which has been running state affairs in the absence of a functional government in Yemen.
While the Saudi-led coalition has failed to meet any of its objectives, the war has killed hundreds of thousands of Yemenis and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
