Houthis shut down eight private hospitals in Sana’a

Alsahwa Net-The Houthi militants have shut down eight private hospitals in the capital Sana’a when managers failed to pay illegal money for the rebels’ military effort.

Medical sources said that the Houthi militants revoked licenses and removed posts from the closed hospitals’ buildings.

Inspection health officials accompanied by militants raided the hospitals and closed them. They also shut down some departments of other hospitals saying that closed clinics do not comply with the medical standards. 

Medical sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat Daily Newspaper said that the rebels meant by medical standards is to pay money to the Houthis officials.

They added that some hospital owners had to pay between YR1million to 3million to reopen their clinics.

The same sources indicated that inspection by the Houthis-run health ministry officials inspect only specific hospitals and tolerate hospitals that are managed by Houthis-affiliated leaders.

A document released by the Houthis-run Ministry of Health shows that eight hospitals were shut down by the Houthis.

The closed hospitals include: Sa’awan Hospital, Al-Hilal Al-Abyad Hospital, Al-Khazan Hospital, Al-Sallam Specialized Hospital, Mojali Hospital, The Orthopedics Hospital, Hadda Hospital and Al-Dhahbi Hospital.

Medical operations and intensive care units’ divisions were closed by the Houthis in 25 other hospitals.

The measure taken by the Houthis against private clinics in Sana’a will increase medical operations’ fees on the Yemeni patients who struggle to survive amid worst humanitarian crisis, medical officials say.
