Airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition on a prison in Yemen have killed at least 87 people and injured 226 others, the Deputy Minister of Health in the Houthi government Najib al-Kubati said,
Earlier, reports were made that the alliance’s military aircraft bombed a correctional facility in the Yemeni province of Saada. Then, the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders said that 70 people were killed and about 140 were injured due to the airstrike. Last night, the coalition issued a statement denying involvement in the raid, calling all reports “baseless and untrue” and promising to bring the “real facts” to the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
“The number of victims of the massacre in Saada reached 87, and 226 wounded were taken to hospitals,” al-Kubati claimed. – “Rescuers continue to extract the victims and the bodies of the dead from the rubble.”
The conflict in Yemen has been going on since August 2014.
