Saudi-led Arab coalition forces were behind a June 11 airstrike that hit a newly constructed Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) cholera treatment center (CTC) in Abs, Yemen.

The facility was empty at the time because it had not yet received any cholera patients so no staff or patients were injured or killed, according to the humanitarian organization.
