Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) said Wednesday that GPS coordinates for its hospital in the Yemeni district of Haydan were provided to the Saudi-led military coalition on the day it was bombed.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, several airstrikes targeted the MSF Haydan hospital, with staff and patients inside the building. No casualties were reported.

According to an earlier statement by MSF, the Saudi-led coalition conducting airstrikes in the region against Houthi positions were provided with coordinates of all hospitals two weeks prior to the attack.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned on Tuesday the bombing and called for an unbiased probe into the attack.

Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government and the Houthi opposition faction for over a year.

Since late March, the Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out airstrikes against Houthis at the request of Yemeni President-in-exile Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
