Medicines Sans Frontiers, MSF says seventy percent of health facilities in Ethiopia’s conflict-hit northern region of Tigray have been vandalized and equipment looted.
According to the Medical Charity, the facilities were deliberately attacked to make them non-functional.
The organization said in a statement that the situation was having devastating impact on the population.
The Ethiopian authorities, however, said that most health services have been restored.
