The Houthi bombardment left material damages and panic to patients and staff of a hospital serving thousands of civilians in Taiz city that has been under Houthi siege for seven years now, Moammar al-Eryani added.
The Yemeni minister criticized the international silence at the Houthi war crimes suffered by Yemen's most populated province.
