A top UN official in Yemen has said Saudi-led airstrikes, in which at least 12 civilians including children were killed, were an example of the "disregard" for civilians' safety shown by all sides in Yemen's civil war.

At least 10 others were also wounded in Sa'ada Province after attacks on Friday on a house and a private vehicle, the UN's Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen Jamie McGoldrick said, citing reports from fellow aid groups, Al Jazeera reported.

Three women and six children from the same family were killed in an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition on their home in the area, a local health official told Reuters.

A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition did not respond to a request for a comment.
