SANAA BLOCKADE CAUSES YEMENI CONJOINED TWINS DEATH
SANAA: Riyadh military was blamed for the death of newborn Yemeni conjoined twins in Sanaa, Yemen, for refusing to open Sanaa airport for the twins to seek treatment from abroad.
The twins, Abdelkhaleq and Abdelrahi who shared a kidney and a pair of legs but had separate hearts and lungs were born only two weeks ago.
The head of paediatrics at Sanaa’s Al-Thawra hospital, Dr Faisal al-Babili, said, his department lacked the facilities to treat the newborn boys and therefore has appealed for help from abroad on Wednesday.
Flights to and from Sanaa and shipments of humanitarian aids through Hodeida had severely restricted by the Saudi-led coalition due to the conflicts between Yemen since March 2015.
