Enemy of Islam Saudi Jets Bomb Al-Marafeq Base in Sa’ada despite May 12 Truce
The Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted Al-Marafeq Base near Sa’ada on Friday despite a five-day ceasefire that started on May 12, local sources said.
The sources said the al-Marafeq Base has been targeted by the Saudi-led coalition earlier today.
The sources did not comment on the possible death toll or casualties.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 51 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 3,803 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.
On April 21 and May 12, Saudi Arabia declared end to Yemen airstrikes after weeks of bombings, but airstrikes are still underway.
The five-day 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.
But, the Saudi airstrikes on Yemen continued on Wednesday in violation of ceasefire started on May 12.
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.
