There are no second thoughts that we are writing the history in most horrific colours, as the entire world appears to be at war right now. Humanity defying incidents continue to meet our ears that are enough to send chills down anyone’s spine.
A video of a young boy refusing to let go of his father’s body has unsettled the internet. The heart-wrenching video was shot in Yemen after a Saud-led coalition attacked a wedding ceremony in Bani Qayis district, north Yemen.
Attacked killed more than 20 individuals who had gathered in a tent for the wedding ceremony, including the bride herself. 46 were injured, 30 of them were children.
A TV station of armed Houthi movement, Al Masirah, claims that 33 people have lost their lives while 55 left with severe wounds.
The ambulances couldn’t reach the location of the attack in time because of the fear that there will be more attacks in the similar area, that further risked the lives.
The heartbreaking footage that caused the internet unrest showed the human body parts scattered in all directions after the attack, while a young boy tightly holds on to his father’s lifeless body – screaming and crying.
A spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition said that they will investigate the matter just like the ‘matters of similar nature are investigated’.
“We take this report very seriously and it will be fully investigated as all reports of this nature are’’ – he said.
The civil war that broke out three years back has so far taken lives of 10,000 civilians so far. The war started when the government of Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi was pushed out of Sana’a, the capital, by the Houthis. This later led to a military intervention from Saudi Arabia, creating an endless chain of suffering for the Yemenis.
