Saudi Warplanes Violate Truce, Bomb Yemen
The Saudi air strikes continued against civilian targets in different cities in Yemen on Wednesday in violation of the five-day ceasefire announced earlier.
The Saudi-led coalition conducted 4 air strikes on the Yemeni provinces of Hajja, Sa’ada hour after the start of the ceasefire.
Warplanes from the Saudi-led coalition also pounded Lahij province in violation of the truce.
The truce was proposed by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir last week. Yemen’s Ansarullah movement has announced its cooperation in any actions that will stop suffering in the country.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 49 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 3,755 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
