The Saudi Arabian Air Force carried out raids on military and civilian installations in the cities of Yemen, which are under the control of the Houthi rebels from the Shiite movement Ansar Allah. By data Beirut TV channel Al Mayadeen (translation TASS), as a result of a rocket attack on the main prison in the administrative center of the province of Saada, more than 60 people were killed and another 150 were injured.
According to media reports, a rescue operation is underway. There may be people under the rubble of the collapsed building.
Earlier this week, the Saudi-led coalition command reported the death of more than 60 Houthi supporters in air raids. Most of them died in the province of Marib, where there are fierce battles between the rebels and the ground forces of the coalition, recalls TASS.
The conflict in Yemen has been going on since August 2014. The military confrontation intensified after the invasion of the country in March 2015 by troops of the Saudi-led coalition in order to support the armed forces loyal to President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
According to the UN, more than 24 million Yemenis (about 80% of the population of the republic) are in need of humanitarian assistance.
