SANAA, Yemen, At least 13 people were killed, when a Saudi-led coalition air strike hit a popular market in Yemen's northern province of Saada, on Monday evening, residents and a medic said.
The death toll increased to 13, including two children, while 23 others, including 11 children, were wounded, in the Saudi-led coalition air strike, on Al-Thabit popular market, in Katabir district in Saada, a medic at the Saada health office said.
Eyewitness said, several fruit and vegetable stalls were destroyed and burned to the ground, where rescue workers were searching for possible survivors.
There were no comments from Saudi Arabia or the coalition on the air strike.
The air strike came, a few hours after Yemeni Shiite Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for a ballistic missile attack, on the south-western Saudi city of Asir.
The Houthis have recently stepped up missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia, but most of the missiles and drones were intercepted and destroyed by the kingdom's air forces.
