Tehran, YJC. Saudi-led airstrikes on a dairy factory in Yemen’s Hadida province have taken dozens casualties.

In the wake of Saudi-led airstrikes on a dairy factory in Yemen’s Hadida province, 30 were killed and 25 others wounded.

Medical sources in the city said 25 workers at the plant had been killed at the factory, which was located near an army camp loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, a Houthi ally.

Residents and witnesses contacted by Reuters said the air strikes had targeted the factory shortly after midnight on Wednesday. Others said rockets fired from the base - possibly as retaliation against the bombings - hit the factory.

Al Jazeera reported that in another wave of airstrikes on Wednesday morning, areas in Aden and Hadida province were also bombarded.

Decisive Storm Operation spokesman claimed that the airstrikes have stopped Ansarullah advancement in Aden.

Air strikes overnight hit Houthi positions along the Saudi border in Yemen's far North, an army bases in the central highlands, air defense infrastructure in the eastern Marib province, and a coast guard position near Hodaida.
