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

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Twitter that a hospital it supports in Hajjah received at least 65 patients, including at least 13 children, wounded in the air strikes, which it said were "among the most devastating in the area in recent months".

The civilians were mostly women and children, who were in a tent set up for the wedding party.

The council was formed by the Houthi movement and the General People's Congress Party in 2016 to run the country's affairs in the absence of an effective government amid a civil war that has been going on in Yemen since 2015. "He was speechless and appeared in a bad psychological state as some of his relatives had been killed", al-Rajihi said.

Rescue teams said the wedding was being held in the Houthi-controlled Bani Qais area of Hajjah province, north of Sanaa, when jets carried out the raid. Many Yemenis also criticise the United States and other western nations for selling billions of dollars of weapons to the Saudis and Emiratis, much of which is used in Yemen. Global peace talks aimed at ending the war have made little progress in years.

The leader of Houthi Ansarullah movement, in a live speech, said on Friday 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.

But later its top leader accused Mossad of killing al-Batsh and threatened retaliation. The body is expected to arrive in Gaza on Thursday.

The Houthis control the capital Sanaa and are fighting forces loyal to the internationally-recognised government based in the southern port city of Aden.

He also said that coalition forces have a legal and moral commitment to protect civilians and civilian objects, in addition to taking all precautionary and preventive measures to ensure that the effects of conflict doesn't harm civilians.

Saudi air defence has intercepted two ballistic missiles fired by Houthi militias towards the border city of Jazan, according to Al Arabiya television on Monday.

Meanwhile Houthi Ansarullah Movement has elected Mahdi al-Mashat as Samad's successor.

"This crime will not pass without accountability".
