YEMEN. Sana’a. September 7, 2015. The Republic Hospital. Burn injuries section. Adam Mujahid Abdullah, 20 years old. The only survivor from an airstrike on a civilian area carried out by the Saudi Arabian-led coalition.
“Because of the siege, medical supplies and basic necessities cannot reach civilians. Hospitals, which were in a state of disrepair before the conflict, are now overflowing with wounded people who cannot be treated. The morgues have no more room to accommodate victims and bodies dismembered by bombs which are therefore stacked on top of each other. The raids of the Saudi-led coalition constantly hit densely populated areas, terrorising, destroying and killing. Over 1.5 million people have had to leave their homes and move into dilapidated refugee camps, with virtually no support from international organisations.”
