ADEN, The United Arab Emirates (UAE), continued on Friday, its fight against epidemics, in various areas of Yemen.
In the Red Sea coast areas, particularly in the cities of Hodeidah and Mocha, several mobile clinics were deployed by the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC).
Medical sources said that, the UAE's medical efforts, which are being conducted through the ERC, managed to provide health care for more than 4,200 patients in Mocha and other remote areas of the Red Sea coast.
Yemen's health ministry praised the UAE's humanitarian efforts, and urged all local authorities to cooperate with the ERC.
The UAE is an active member of the Saudi-led Arab military coalition that has been fighting the Iran-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen since Mar, 2015.
The prolonged military conflict has aggravated the suffering of Yemenis and deepened the world's worst humanitarian crisis in the impoverished country.
