Exclusive: Hospitals in Houthi stronghold in northern Yemen overwhelmed
Issued on: Modified:
In Saada, the northern Yemeni stronghold of the Houthi rebels, FRANCE 24 found civilians, especially children, paying the price of war. Warning: some images may be distressing. Perched at an altitude of around 2,000 metres, Saada has known its fair share of conflicts over the centuries. But the most recent one has all but destroyed it. The local hospital is overwhelmed with injured -- civilians and fighters who FRANCE 24 are not allowed to see since the Houthis keep close control of their image. But FRANCE 24 has been granted access to the children's emergency room, where Saada’s next generation are paying the ultimate price for the war and ensuing humanitarian crisis.
