Frenzied Saudi Bombing of Yemen: Reports of Over 180 Casualties | Farsnews Agency

(FNA)- Saudi warplanes bombed homes in Yemen's Western city of Hudaydah and a prison in North-Western Sa'ada, with initial reports putting casualties above 180 people.

In Sa'ada, Saudi warplanes attacked a temporary detention center, leaving at least 180 people - including African migrants - dead or injured, Al-Masirah reported. It showed footage of the wounded at Al-Jamhuri hospital in Sa'ada.

A correspondent of Lebanon's Al-Mayadeen television in Yemen said 62 bodies had been pulled out from under the rubble.

"The hospitals are full of martyrs and the wounded, and we desperately need medicine and medical equipment," Sa'ada Governor Mohammad Jaber Awad said, adding, "Many international organizations had previously visited the prison."

In Hudaydah, at least six civilians were killed and 18 others injured after Saudi jets heavily bombed residential areas early Friday, Al-Mayadeen reported.

They struck a communications center in the city some 145 km Southwest of the capital Sana'a, provincial health office director Ali Al-Ahdal told Yemen's Al-Masirah television. As a result, a three-story building was leveled to the ground.

Local authorities continue to search for possible survivors and recover the bodies of the victims who were mostly children playing near the building.

A source said incessant overflights by Saudi aircraft are hampering rescue efforts.

The frenzied bombing of Yemen by the Saudi-led coalition has intensified since Yemeni forces launched rare drone and missile strikes against strategic targets deep inside the UAE in retaliation.
