Security forces fired on antigovernment protesters in three cities in Yemen on Wednesday, killing at least 12 people and wounding more than 100, doctors said.

The Yemeni government said it held the political opposition “fully responsible” for any violence, which appeared to make it even less likely that the sides could reach agreement on a final accord for a peaceful transfer of presidential power.
At least 10 people were killed in Sana, the capital, and more than 100 were wounded, said Abdul Wahab al-Anesi, a doctor at a field hospital in the city.
“I expect the number of killed to rise,” he said. “We are not accepting anyone else at the field hospital. We are full. We have a shortage of supplies.”
This is an every day occurrence in Sanaa. Whilst The Yemeni people protest peacefully, they come inder the crossfires of the armed factions.
And the field Hospitals are not being re-supplied. International Organisations do not have the funds to be able to keep up with the casualty toll that does not cease to rise.
#SupportYemen is a global movement, reuniting Yemenis across the globe. With our network of volunteers, and partners our goal is to provide emergency mediacal supplies to the hospital in Yemen's capital.
