“We are worried that wounded people are trapped between frontlines, and many of them are not able to reach health facilities inside or outside of the city,” said Caroline Ducarme, MSF Head of Mission in Yemen.
“Across three MSF-supported facilities within Taiz city, medical teams have received 49 war wounded and two dead upon arrival over the last four days. However, we do not know the true total number of wounded in need of emergency assistance.”
There have been reports of a hospital being damaged due to fighting nearby. Additionally, one of the public hospitals in Taiz has been forced to close due to fighting, making it even harder for people to access urgent medical care.
