Saudi-coalition airstrike kills civilians in Yemen

The 12 victims were all from the same family, they said.

Even Iran itself can not deny it, a senior Iranian official told Reuters that Iran's Quds Force is seeking to further "empower" the Houthis by increasing the "training, arms and financial support", that it is already giving the Houthis.

Ging said cholera had infected 1.1 million people in Yemen since last April, and a new outbreak of diphtheria had occurred in the war-ravaged Arab country since 1982.

The council statement did not name who is violating the arms embargo against the Houthis.

The Saudi-led coalition, which has been waging a bloody war on Yemen for three years, recently displayed wreckage of what it called fragments of missiles recently fired from Yemen, and claimed forensic analysis showed they were supplied by Iran.

Despite the United Nations conclusions, last month Russian Federation used its veto power in the council to block a western resolution call outing Tehran for violating the arms embargo.

The Ansarallah group, popularly known as "Houthis", ousted President Hadi in 2015 and established a Supreme Revolutionary Committee after several failed dialogue attempts.

On Monday, a missile targeted the border area of Dhahran al-Janub.

Yemeni forces regularly fire ballistic missile at positions inside Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Riyadh-led military campaign on Yemen.

Humanitarian groups accuse the Saudi-led coalition of indiscriminate bombing of non-military targets and critical infrastructure.

Last month, as Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was visiting the United States on a friendship tour, the Senate defeated a bipartisan effort to end the assistance in a 55-to-44 vote, but only after extensive lobbying by top Pentagon officials. It has also implemented a blockade of Yemeni ports including Hodeida, leading to widespread shortages of food, fuel and medical supplies for Yemen's civilian population.

Saudi Arabia have previously blamed Iran for the Houthi fighters' actions.
