Saudi-led coalition members said the airstrikes targeted a location that housed Houthi air defense missiles and drones.
 
But Houthi rebels say the strikes hit a prison that held over 170 captured government soldiers.
 
The prison's location in Yemen's central Dhamar province was reportedly well known. A team from the International Committee of the Red Cross had visited the detainees as part of their regular humanitarian work.
 
Dhamar is located about 100 kilometers south of Yemen's capital Sanaa and has been under Houthi control since late 2014, after Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government was forced into exile.
 
Saudi-led coalition forces have fought in support of Hadi's internationally-recognized government and against the Iran-allied Houthis for more than four years.
