At least 140 people were killed and more than 500 wounded in several air strikes on a funeral reception in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, according to reports.

The funeral was for Sheikh Ali al-Rawishan, father of Galal al-Rawishan, the interior minister in the rebel-led government. BBC reported that a number of Houthi rebel military and security officials are believed to have been killed in the strike.

Hundreds of mourners had gathered in the hall to take part in a funeral ceremony.

The United Nations released a statement saying the UN humanitarian coordinator and the NGO community in Yemen were outraged and shocked by the air strikes.

“Initial reports from health officials in Sanaa indicate over 140 people were killed and over 525 injured,” OCHA said in the statement.

The death toll was one of the largest in any single incident since the Arab alliance began military operations to try to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power following his ousting by the Houthis in March 2015.

According to Reuters:

Residents said aircraft fired two missiles at the hall, where hundreds of mourners had gathered to offer condolences.

One missile tore through the building, setting it on fire and sending a large plume of smoke above the area. The other landed nearby.

Witnesses described a scene of carnage, with charred or mutilated bodies strewn around. 

Hundreds more were reportedly wounded. The International Red Cross said it had prepared 300 body bags.

The Associated Press quoted one rescuer as saying the site was turned into a “lake of blood.”

For the record, the Saudi-led coalition, whose planes the U.S. continues to refuel are responsible for this blood bath.

This world is in a complete state of chaos.

God Bless.
