13 April 2016 13:32


Saudi warplanes have targeted a number of areas across Yemen for the third day since a UN-brokered ceasefire went into force.

Yemen’s al-Masirah television network said Saudi jets bombarded the Dhubab district of Ta’izz Province as well as the Sirwah and Jebel Hilan districts of Ma’rib Province early on Wednesday.

According to the report, Saudi-backed militants also launched mortar attacks on the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, and in the province of Jawf.

Pro-Saudi forces further carried out missile attacks in the Yemeni provinces of Shabwah, Lahij and Dhale despite the truce that took effect at midnight (2100 GMT) on Sunday.
