Sana'a (IP) - Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Yemen visited the Revolution Hospital in Sana'a, the capital, on Wednesday.

Iran PressMiddle East: While visiting the 'Revolution hospital,' Hassan Irlu was closely informed about patients' problems with kidney failure, including the lack of dialysis solution and medicine.

This visit took place after the assistance of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the repair and maintenance of the surgical ward of the Revolution Hospital of Sana'a.

Yemen's health sector has been deteriorated in recent years due to the continuing aggression and siege of the country by the Saudi coalition.

UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Mark Lowcock last Thursday called the humanitarian situation in Yemen catastrophic and said that Yemen was going through the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

The United Nations has previously said that Yemen is facing the worst food crisis in the world.

With the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia has launched a military invasion of Yemen in March 2015 and imposed a land, sea, and air siege.

The outbreak of war by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen has so far killed more than 17,000 Yemenis, injured tens of thousands, and displaced millions of them.

The Saudi military aggression has also left the impoverished country of Yemen severely with a shortage of food and medicine.
