Al Mayadeen‘s correspondent reported on Friday that more than 60 martyrs and 120 wounded fell on Friday as a result of Saud-led coalition airstrikes on the central prison in Saada, with the death toll still increasing.

Our correspondent also noted that a number of the casualties are foreign nationals, stressing that rescue teams have been working on the site of the massacre since dawn, trying to find the bodies of the dead and rescue the wounded.

The Saudi-led coalition continued to launch its airstrikes on a number of Yemeni governorates, causing civilian casualties, as more than 70 strikes were counted within the past few hours. The coalition also continues to violate the ceasefire in Al-Hudaydah.

On Thursday, the Saudi-led coalition of aggression launched a series of violent air raids on Al-HudaydahAl Mayadeen‘s correspondent reported.

The Saudi-led coalition’s air force targeted the telecommunication tower in the city, our correspondent added, which resulted in 6 martyrs, including 3 children, and 18 wounded, most of whom were children.

Mass rallies in Yemen denouncing Saudi coalition genocide

Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, and other Yemeni cities witnessed mass rallies denouncing the Saudi genocides in Saada and Al-Hudaydah.

This comes after the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on Saada’s central prison martyred 65 and wounded more than 120.

Al Mayadeen‘s correspondent noted that a number of the casualties are foreign nationals, stressing that rescue teams have been working on the site of the genocide since dawn, trying to find the bodies of the dead and rescue the wounded.

International collusion 

In this context, the Minister of Information in the Sanaa government, Dhaif Allah Al-Shami, pointed out that the Saudi-led coalition wanted to commit a genocide amid the Internet shutdown in Yemen, noting that “what happened in Syria” is being implemented in Yemen.

In an interview for Al Mayadeen, Al-Shami added that the Red Cross’ visit to Saada’s prison two days ago indicates international collusion in the genocide, stressing that Yemen is currently isolated from the world, but the Yemeni blood “will turn into volcanoes of anger.”

The Yemeni minister affirmed that “criminals cannot escape punishment,” assuring that “what they saw in their capitals is only a warning.”

The calls for demonstrations began on Thursday, as the organizing committee urged the Yemeni people to participate widely in Sanaa and other provinces.

The committee in Sanaa designated Bab Al-Yaman Square as a venue for the events on Friday.
