According to the Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, Saudi fighter jets on Sunday hit a wedding ceremony in the districts of Arfaj and Hisan, leaving more than 10 women dead.

Dozens of others were also injured during the raids.

The kingdom’s jets also carried out another raid on a vehicle carrying women to the ceremony but failed to cause major casualties.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than two years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 12,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
