The United Arab Emirates, which is part of the Saudi coalition forces fighting the rebels, has threatened retaliation. According to Doctors Without Borders, hospitals have been filled after the attack on the jail in Saada, with only 200 injured in one hospital.

Bashir Omar, a spokesman for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Yemen, told AFP that more than 100 people had been killed and wounded, and that the number was rising.

Ahmed Moht, head of Mission for Doctors Without Borders in Yemen, said there were still many bodies at the site of the airstrikes, with many missing, and it was almost impossible to know how many had been killed.

An emergency meeting of the UN Security Council was scheduled for Friday at the request of the UAE against the attack by Houthi rebels. The UAE has been a non-permanent member of the Security Committee since January 1.

The Saudi state news agency said coalition forces had carried out targeted attacks to undermine the Houthi militia's capabilities.
