A series of Saudi-led airstrikes on a prison in southwestern Yemen have killed at least 60 prisoners, Houthi rebels said on Sunday.
Rebel spokesman Mohamed Abdul-Salam said on Twitter that 100 people were injured in the attack, which targeted a detention center in the city of Dhamar.
“The prison is known to the coalition and the Red Cross, which visited the site several times,” Abdul-Qadir al-Murtada, the head of a Houthi-run committee for prisoner affairs, said on Facebook.
While, Saudi-led coalition said in a statement that the airstrikes targeted a site storing drones and missiles.
In 2015, a Houthi-run detention center in Dhamar was struck by a Saudi-led coalition airstrike, killing at least 25 prisoners.
At the time, the Saudi-backed Yemeni government accused Houthi rebels of using prisoners as human shields.
Yemen has remained wracked by violence since 2014, when the Iran-aligned Houthi group overran much of the country, including the capital Sanaa.
