An international relief agency says that a new wave of displaced persons has hit a northern Yemeni city after fighting surged between forces backed by the Saudi-led coalition and rival Houthi rebels.

Doctors Without Borders also said Wednesday that in the northern Yemeni city of Abs, it treated over 360 civilians wounded in the crossfire in August and September. The number amounts to nearly 40 percent of all the wounded in 2018.

The influx of nearly 20,000 newly displaced people is a result of intense battles raging in a district close to the Yemen-Saudi Arabia border called Bani Hassan, around 50 kilometers (31 miles) from Abs, the agency said.

The agency said those who make it to Abs arrive "too late for us to save their lives.''
