A spokesman for the Red Cross in Sanaa told AFP the toll was not final as casualties from the attack had been taken to several different hospitals.
Al-Masirah, the TV station of the armed Houthi movement, said on its Twitter account that 39 people had been killed and 51 wounded.
"The air strikes targeted a bus full of school students in the middle of Dahyan market in Saada province while they were going to their school", the official said. That assistance has come under sharp criticism from Congress and the global community as civilian deaths have continued to multiply, even as the coalition promises not to target civilians.
Thursday's attack marks a grim milestone in a war that lately has seen yet another escalation, as coalition-backed Yemeni government forces have made a recent push to reclaim the key port city of Hodeidah from rebels.
"Today's attack in Saada was a legitimate military operation. and was carried out in accordance with worldwide humanitarian law", the Arabic-language coalition statement said, quoting spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki.
Unicef, the United Nations children's agency, said on Twitter that there were "no more excuses...."
"Putting children in harm's way is horrific and deplorable and making them pay such a price is unacceptable", she said.
Footage from the Houthi media office showed a boy wearing a blue backpack with a UNICEF logo being carried into a hospital emergency room with blood pouring down his face and over his traditional Yemeni thawb, an ankle-length garment.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and their allies intervened in the conflict the following March, aiming to push back the Houthis and restore the internationally recognised government to power. They added that this remote area of Saada Province has few hospitals, and the Saudi naval blockade has left them with no medicine, so the death toll is nearly certain to rise. "The attack today was a follow-up process to neutralise that threat". It went on to accuse Houthi rebels of using children as human shields.
Saudi Arabia shot down the missile, with debris killing a Yemeni man and wounding 11 others, the coalition said.
The missile was sacked from the rebel-held Yemeni province of Amran towards Jizan, the coalition said.
They say their missile attacks on the kingdom are in retaliation for air raids on Yemen by the Western-backed coalition. There was no immediate comment from the Houthis in response to the coalition allegations.
"The air strikes often target civilians in Saada, so we appeal the global community to intervene to stop the Saudis killing them".
"It is beyond cruel; innocent children's lives have been lost".
