He had been leaving a university in the Red Sea port city of Al Hudaydah when he and his entourage were targeted by three air strikes, Abdel-Malik al-Houthi, the group's leader, said in a televised address. The rebels' Supreme Political Council said Saleh al-Samad was killed in the coastal Hodeida province on Thursday.

The conflict is widely considered a proxy war between the Iran-backed Houthis and Saudi Arabia, the Shiite theocracy's main regional rival.

The coalition reported no damage or loss of life from the strikes, the latest in a string of bombardments on Saudi Arabia by the Houthis.

A Saudi-led coalition airstrike last week killed the top civilian leader in the Houthi movement in Yemen, the group said.

The news came hours after officials in Yemen said dozens of people were killed and wounded in an air raid on a wedding party in the country on Sunday, in another attack the Houthis blamed on the coalition. Nevertheless, there lie significant risks to oil supplies due to the ongoing war between Saudi Arabia and Houthi rebels, who at the end of a year ago, threatened that they would start attacking oil tankers and warships sailing under enemy flags if the Gulf coalition fighting it in the country does not reopen its ports.

The United Nations has repeatedly criticised Saudi Arabia and its allies for attacks on markets and weddings that have killed civilians, as well as for imposing an economic blockade that has exacerbated the humanitarian crisis. Al Mashat was previously the director of Houthi leader Abdelmalek Al Houthi's office.

She says two coalition airstrikes destroyed a wedding tent killing at least 19 civilians and injuring some 50 others.She says the final toll of deaths and injuries may be higher.
