Airstrikes destroyed Doctors Without Borders Hospital in Yemen. At least 11 people dead, 19 wounded, according to the Doctors Without Borders official website. 2 hospital employees are among the dead.

The organization called these attacks unacceptable. They stressed that the hospital coordinates were well known to all parties to the conflict. Local residents and officials say that the area has been suffering from intense bombing by the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia for several days already. Shiite Houthi rebels' base is located in the area, fighting with the Yemen government.

Coalition representatives do not comment on the incident yet. They reacted on the Saturday bombing of a religious school in an enclave of the northern city of Saada, where 10 children died and more than 20 were injured. The UN condemned this airstrike too.
