Saudi-Led Airstrikes Kill 10 Women in Yemen

SANA’A – At least 10 Yemeni women attending a wedding procession were killed on Sunday in airstrikes carried out by the Saudi Arabia-led military coalition, the Houthi rebel controlled news agency SABA reported.

The strikes targeted a group of women who were returning on foot from a wedding ceremony in Al-Hisan, an area located in the northern province of Mareb, SABA stated.

The airstrikes took place in an area that, according to tribal sources, has been the scene of fighting between Saudi-backed government forces and Houthi rebels.

The Arab coalition has not claimed responsibility for the airstrikes.

Between Thursday and Friday last week, at least 31 civilians were killed by coalition airstrikes in the northern and southwestern parts of the country, according to the Houthis.

The coalition, which supports the internationally-recognized government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, has intensified attacks in Yemen since Dec. 6.

The increase in fighting began two days after the Houthi rebels killed ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh, the rebels’ former ally.

According to a United Nations report, at least 5,144 civilians have been killed and more than 8,749 injured between March 2015, when the Saudi-led alliance began its military campaign in Yemen, and Aug. 30, 2017.

The ongoing military intervention has destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure, leading to a widespread humanitarian crisis.

The Arab coalition has previously bombed weddings and funerals in Yemen, including a strike in September 2015 that reportedly killed over 130 people.
