Saudi Arabia hits Yemen with airstrikes

02.09.2019, Sanaʽa.

Arab coalition air forces struck a prison in the western province of Dhamar in Yemen, the Lebanese TV channel Al-Manar reported on September 1.

The attack killed at least 60 people and 100 more were injured.

According to the Hussites, coalition aircraft struck the prison, where prisoners of war were located.

Abdul Qader al-Mortada, head of the Yemeni National Prison Committee, said that the prison housed more than 170 prisoners of war, most of whom were to be exchanged.

The Arab coalition said its airstrikes in Dhamar were directed against a Hussite military facility. Supposedly, the Hussites were storing drones and anti-aircraft defense systems at the site, and the strikes “do not contradict international humanitarian law“.

The Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia supports the Yemeni government in exile and is waging war against the Hussites, who carried out a coup d’état in 2014.
