Air strikes in Yemen

Meanwhile, leader of Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, in a live speech, said all aggressor countries, including the USA and Saudi Arabia, were responsible for the killing of Samad, and they must await the consequences of their crime.

Chairman of Yemen's Supreme Political Council Saleh al-Samad was killed last Thursday after the Saudi-led coalition targeted his residence in the Red Sea port city of Hudaydah.

Saudi Arabia-led coalition has been fighting the Houthis since March 2015 to restore Yemen's internationally recognised government to power.

Hajja, which is located in northwestern Yemen, is under the control of Houthi rebels.

An airstrike on a wedding party, carried out by the Saudi-led coalition waging war in Yemen, killed more than 20 people and wounded dozens of others, including the groom, Yemeni officials said Monday.

She says two coalition airstrikes destroyed a wedding tent killing at least 19 civilians and injuring some 50 others.She says the final toll of deaths and injuries may be higher.

Sayyed AbdulMalik al-Houthi said that the people look at the Samad's sacrifices an incentive for giving more, steadfastness and strengthening the internal front.

Ali Nasser al-Azib, deputy head of the hospital, said 30 children were among the wounded, some in critical condition with shrapnel wounds and severed limbs.

It's part of a civil war that has now claimed some 10,000 lives.

There was no immediate comment by the Saudi-led coalition.

"The assassination of al-Sammad will not go unpaid", said Mohammed Abdul-Salam, a Houthi spokesman, on the rebels' television channel, al-Masirah.

Earlier this month, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres dubbed Yemen's war the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22 million people - three quarters of the population - in desperate need of aid and protection.

More than 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict that the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian disaster.
