The aircraft hit the al-Moshnaq market in Sa'ada Province's Shada'a District Saturday night as people gathered to buy staples for Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

At least 24 civilians were killed in an air raid today on a market in northern Yemen, a medical official and witnesses said, blaming the Saudi-led coalition battling Yemeni rebels.

"Rescue teams were unable to reach the area for some time for fear of being hit by artillery shelling of the area", the official, Dr Abdelilah al-Azzi, told Reuters news agency by telephone on Sunday.

Yemen has been engulfed in civil war since September 2014 when the rebels swept into the capital of Sanaa and overthrew the internationally recognised government.

A year ago in October, at least 115 people were killed and several others injured after a Saudi-led coalition bombardment a funeral hall in Sana'a.

The Saudi-led coalition has closed the main airport and prevented many human rights workers from entering the country.

The Saudi-led coalition has not acknowledged or otherwise commented on the reported incident.

More than 8,000 people have been killed in the past two years and tens of thousands wounded in the war in Yemen, according to the World Health Organization.

Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen in 2015 to restore former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi to power.
