United Nations chief strongly condemns air strikes on Yemen wedding

What Next for Yemen's Tragic War?

Meanwhile, Houthi militias have confirmed the killing of the head of their political council Saleh Ali al-Sammad in a coalition raid in south of al-Hudaydah province.

"The forces of aggression, led by America and Saudi Arabia, bear the legal responsibility for this crime and all its consequences", al-Houthi said.

"He was speechless and appeared in a bad psychological state as some of his relatives had been killed", Rajhi said. Other officials put the figure as high as 50 slain. "He was the acting president in the Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen, so this is considered the biggest blow for the Houthis, politically, since the war started", he said. After the attack, people posted online what they said were survivors collecting mangled and charred bodies.

Meanwhile, leader of Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, in a live speech, said all aggressor countries, including the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, were responsible for the killing of Samad, and they must await the consequences of their crime. Iran, which is accused of supplying arms to the Houthis, swiftly condemned the raid.

Guterres a year ago put the Saudi-led coalition on a United Nations blacklist of child rights' violators for killing and maiming children in Yemen.

The Saudi Air Defense force said in a statement that it destroyed ballistic missiles in flight that had been fired into the Jizan region on the border from inside Yemen, without causing any damage.
