Sanaa: According to two health ministry officials on yesterday said that at least more than 155 people were killed in Saudi led warplane airstrikes at funeral community hall in Yemen’s capital.
On other hand the coalition denied any role in the funeral mourners was killed and more than 525 people were reportedly injured.
The Suaudi-led coalition which involves several Arab countries that began a military campaign in Yemen in March 2015 aimed at preventing Houthi rebels allied to Iran and forces loyal to Yemen’s deposed Prdesident Ali Abdullah Saleh from taking power.
United Nations said that an estimated 10,000 people have been killed in what many term the “forgotten war”.
The death toll was one of the largest in any single incident since the Saudi-led alliance began military operations to try to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power following his ousting by the Iran-aligned Houthis in March 2015.
The crisis quickly escalated into a multi-sided war, which allowed Al-Qaeda and the IS-other enemies of the Houthis-to grow stronger amid the chaos.
In a strongly worded rebuke, the White House said it may consider cutting its support to the Saudi-led military campaign.
Sources in the Saudi-led coalition said there was no Arab coalition air role in the strike.
