Saudi Arabia has been operating several hospitals in Yemen. The kingdom has also been the biggest financial aid contributor to Yemen. Just to give you an idea of the kind of work that Saudi backed hospitals do, Mohamed al-Jabir, the Saudi ambassador to Yemen posted a series of tweets that highlighted it.
Whats’s most significant were the accounts of two hospitals that operate in territory that is occupied by the Houthi rebels. Saudi Arabia pays for the staff salaries and operational costs of these hospitals.
The two hospitals that we’re talking about operate in Yemen’s Hajjah and Saada regions.
Al-Salam Hospital in #Saadah and the Saudi Hospital in #Hajjah are operating with Saudi support to: salaries, operation & maintenance, materials and medical equipment to support our brothers in #Yemen.

Al Jabir retweeted the WHO Yemen tweet with a comment that shows the continual aid that Saudi Arabia continues to provide even in Houthi controlled territory.
The Kingdom through @KSRelief and in cooperation with @WHO continue to support the health of Yemeni people with no discrimination even in areas controlled by the Iranian-backed Houthi Militias. https://t.co/yO19k1Yoj8
