ADEN, Yemen- Doctors Without Borders (MSF), an international medical charity, said, it has suspended activities in Yemen's southern province of al-Dhalea following terror attacks on its headquarters.

The MSF headquarters, based in al-Dhalea was targeted for the second time, in less than a week by explosives, but, fortunately, nobody was harmed, the MSF said in a statement.

A security source said that, "unknown gunmen attacked the headquarters of the MSF with explosives and investigations are underway."

The MSF strongly condemned the attacks on its compound and staff, adding that, it was forced to withdraw its staff from al-Dhalea province and suspend its medical programmes until further notice due to lack of safety.

The attacks deprive people of much-needed healthcare, the statement said, calling on all warring parties, armed groups and individuals in Yemen, to respect and ensure the safety of humanitarian and health workers in the country.

The MSF remains committed to support the Yemeni people and is working in 15 hospitals and health centres in Yemen, while providing support to more than 16 hospitals or health centres across 12 provinces of the war-torn Arab country.
