Dozens killed as airstrikes hit prison in Yemen
Hudaydah: Saudi-led coalition airstrikes have killed dozens of people at a Yemeni prison complex, the reports claimed.
According to the sources, the strikes hit a building used as a prison in Al-Zaydiya security headquarters in Hudaydah, the reports revealed.
Moreover, the city of Hudaydah is under the control of Houthi rebels who have been battling the government since 2014.
According to Houthi rebels, the death toll stands at 43.
Meanwhile, the coalition which backs Yemen’s exiled President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, has been severely criticized for civilians being killed in attacks.
Earlier this month, at least 140 people were killed including civilians when planes bombed a funeral hall in Sanaa, Yemen’s capital.
It is pertinent to mention here that the latest attacks come as President Hadi has rejected a new peace proposal submitted by UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.
