The first airstrike took place at around 10:30 pm on Monday October 26th. The last airstrike was around 12:00 am. All the staff managed to leave the facility once they heard the first airstrike. There were two patients in the IPD department who also managed to escape after the first airstrike.

 I was not able to go inside as we believed there were remaining bombs that have not been exploded but I can confirm that the facility is 99% destroyed,  said Miriam Czech, MSF project coordinator in Saada.  The emergency room was destroyed, the OPD, the IPD the lap and the maternity was destroyed. There was functioning OT but that was also destroyed. Miriam was not there during the airstrike but she visited the facility today. She arrived there by 11:00 am (12 hours after the airstrike) and said that she could see and smell the smoke coming out of the facility.

The health facility is closed now, and it was the only life-saving facility in the region. MSF used to receive around 150 emergency cases a week. Since May 2015, MSF received around 3400 injured. MSF recently was receiving less numbers as patients were not able to reach the health facility because of fear or airstrikes.
