Wedding Massacre In Yemen: 25 Killed In Saudi-Coalition Airstrikes On Al-Jawf (Video)

Donate

More than 25 people were killed and many others were injured on July 15 when Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted a wedding in the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf.

The wedding, attended only by women and children, was held in the house of Mabkout Marzouq Merhi in the area of al-Masa’fah.

“Ma’rib Hospital has received more than 16 shredded bodies of women and children and a number of wounded, who were victims of the al-Masa’fah crime , while al-Hazm Hospital has received 8 bodies of martyrs and a number of wounded,” a source familiar with the situation told the al-Masirah TV.

The death toll will likely rise in the upcoming few hours as Yemeni sources are reporting that many of the wounded are in a critical condition.

A spokesman of the Houthi-affiliated Salvation Government in Sanaa, Deif Allah al-Shami, called the coalition airstrikes a “full-fledged war crime,” vowing to response.

“The crimes of aggression will not go unnoticed and the response will be painful,” al-Shami said.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the matter, so far. The airstrikes may have been meant as a response to a recent missile and drone attack by the Houthis on Saudi Arabia, which took place three days ago.

Al-Masa’fah wedding massacre is not an isolated incident. Earlier this week, a series of Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on the northwestern Yemeni province of Hajjah claimed the lives of nine women and children.

    Only Wahhabi monstrosities are,capable of doing such a horrendous thing. Where is now international community to say something on this?
    Where is America now as they usualy do, to do military intervention against Wahhabi monsters?
    All silent!
    Wahhabis will be punished for this, I can promise you.
    They are inhumane, and don’t deserve anything different, and don’t deserve any pity.
    Dear God save us from Wahhabis.
