In the health sector, the aggression destroyed 3 hospitals, 4 medical centers, in addition to the repercussions of the blockade, which caused the suspension of many health centers due to the shortage of fuel, medicines and medical supplies.

The airstrikes also destroyed 15 bridges in a number of areas of the province, with the aim of isolating the province’s areas from each other and from neighbouring provinces, in addition to destroying some 80 vehicles and six heavy construction equipment.

The statistics reported the targeting of 13 mosques in the province, the majority of which were completely destroyed.

The airstrikes targeted and destroyed more than 9 water projects and tanks, depriving thousands of families of clean drinking water.
