At least 44 people have been killed and 180 others wounded in a latest round of Saudi airstrikes on the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

Saudi warplanes targeted military bases in the al-Tahrir and Jabal al-Naqam areas of the capital during the early hours of Sunday.

Similar attacks were reported in the southwestern province of Ta’izz.

Saudi artillery fire also hit the districts of Rahban, Shida and Razih in the northwestern border province of Sa’ada, which has been one of the hardest hit locations since Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate.

On Saturday, nearly 40 people were killed as warplanes bombarded a school, a media center and a residential area among other locations across the eastern province of Hajjah.

In a retaliatory attack, the Yemeni army, backed by popular committees, fired 13 missiles at two military bases near the southern city of Dhahran al-Janoub, Aseer Province.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 2,000 people have been killed as a result of the conflict in the Arab country since March 19.
