The Saudi-led coalition fighter jets conducted 4 air strikes on the Yemeni province of Aden despite the truce announced earlier, reports said Thursday.
According to the Arabic-language Al-Mayadeen television, the Saudi-led coalition bombed Aden in violation of the five-day ceasefire that came into effect Tuesday midnight.
On Wednesday night, Saudi Apache helicopters flew over the border areas of Hajjah province, and bombed al-Mazreq area.
Earlier, a warship of the Saudi-led coalition shelled Jabel Omran area in Aden.
The Saudi air strikes continued against civilian targets in different cities in Yemen on Wednesday in violation of the ceasefire.
The Saudi-led coalition conducted 4 air strikes on the Yemeni provinces of Hajja and Sa’ada hours 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 launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
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.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,803 civilians, mostly women and children.
