He pointed out that the hospital has two operation theaters, an intensive care room and departments of gynecology and obstetrics, pediatrics and emergency care, all with sophisticated medical equipments.
The opening ceremony was attended by a number of senior state officials, Arab ambassadors in Yemen and a gathering of the inhabitants in the island.
