The injured have been transferred to hospitals in the province while teams from the Ministry of Health, Red Crescent and even residents are removing the victims from the rubble.

The head of the National Committee for Prisoner Affairs, Abdulqader al Mortadha, had said that most of the inmates were going to be exchanged in exchange for captured Huthi forces and that rescue teams are finding great difficulties to enter the place due to ” intense and continuous bombing. ”

Previously, the Arab coalition had confirmed the destruction of a military installation of the Huthi movement in Dhamar. According to the Al Arabiya television network, drones, as well as anti-aircraft defense systems were on the premises, and therefore expressly denied that it was a prison.
