SANAA: The United Nations on Sunday said air raids struck Yemen’s Red Sea province of Hodeida for three days, damaging a water plant and placing civilians at “extreme risk”.

“On 26, 27 and 28 July, air strikes occurred near a reproductive health centre and public laboratory in Hodeida and hit and damaged a sanitation facility in Zabid and a water station, which supplies the majority of the water to Hodeida City,” the office of the UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen said in a statement.

“These air strikes are putting innocent civilians at extreme risk,” the statement said.

The UN office said that “damage to sanitation, water and health facilities jeopardises everything we are trying to do” and warned “we could be one air strike away from an unstoppable epidemic”.
