SANAA (Sputnik) — The airstrike caused no injuries among the workers as it was carried out when the factory was closed, according to the source.
"Aircraft of the Arab coalition destroyed a pharmaceutical factory near Dabr Khaira [some 10 miles to the south of Sanaa]," the source said.
Earlier this week, the Saudi-led coalition destroyed a hospital in the Swadi district of central Yemen’s Bayda province.
Yemen has been mired in a military conflict between opposition forces and the internationally-backed government, currently based in the country’s south, for over a year.
The Yemeni government is supported by a coalition of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia who have been pounding rebel positions since the spring of 2015.
