HODEIDAH: The UAE treated an eight-year-old Yemeni child, Sanbani Obaid, in an Emirati hospital, after he was shot in the neck by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias, who targeted his family’s home in At Tuhayta District, Hodeidah Governorate, with indiscriminate shelling.

An Emirati surgical team working with the Arab Coalition, led by Saudi Arabia, in Yemen’s Red Sea Coast received Sanbani, who had a bullet lodged near his heart, and stabilised his condition.

He was then transported by plane to the UAE to continue his treatment.

The Emirates News Agency, WAM, accompanied the Emirati surgical team while receiving the child and witnessed their urgent efforts to save his life, through providing the necessary treatment until his condition was stabilised.

The doctor who treated the child, Dr Ahmed Al Mazrouei, said, “The Emirati field hospital in the Red Sea Coast of Yemen received the child, Sanbani Obaid, in a critical condition, due to being shot in the neck with a bullet that became lodged near his heart, which resulted in heavy bleeding inside his chest and damage to his lung.
