Yemen Fighting Flouts International Law

Indiscriminate attacks on health care have contributed to an epic humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen. A new report tracks these attacks in the hope of holding perpetrators on all sides accountable.
 
It details how both Houthi forces—with their use of wide-area impact weapons—and the Saudi-Emirati coalition—with their aerial attacks—have flagrantly disregarded the special status of health facilities and personnel in conflict zones.
 
One fish trader was in an ER when an explosion hit: “I ripped the IV out of my arm and started running. I was in one of the hospital’s halls when I heard a second explosion, and then a third.”
