This atrocity has been going on since 2015. We’re always told that civilians are not the target, yet over 10,000 civilians have been killed since the start of this civil war.

At least 20 people, including the bride, were killed when an airstrike, allegedly by the Saudi-led coalition, hit a wedding party in the country’s northern Bani Qais district, The Independent reported.

Medics and residents said more than 30 others, mostly women and children gathered inside a tent set up for the wedding, were also injured in Sunday’s attack, already the third deadly airstrike in Yemen since the weekend.

A video from the scene of the airstrike showed scattered human body parts and a young boy hugging a man’s lifeless body, screaming and crying.

Since March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf countries has been carrying out airstrikes against Houthi rebels at Hadi’s request.

Human rights organizations have criticized the coalition for engaging in the indiscriminate bombings with civilians often falling victim to such attacks.

The Saudi-led coalition insists that it never deliberately targets civilians and blames the Houthis, saying they are using civilians as human shields and hiding among the civilian population.

According to the United Nations, some 22 million Yemenis, or 80 percent of the population, are in need of humanitarian aid.
