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.
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.
