Dr. Al-Mutawakel indicated that Yemen is witnessing a record increase in the cases of brain and nerve deformities, with the increase in Saudi-led aggression coalition’s bombing on civilian objects and populated areas with poisonous weapons.
He affirmed that the aggression coalition insists on banning the entry of the endoscopes necessary for neurosurgery for the sixth year in a row, noting that most magnetic resonance devices are almost stopped.
