Local residents and witnesses have said that in Violation of UN-brokered truce agreement that had taken effect in the war-torn impoverished Arab country early this week, Saudi warplanes have bombarded a number of areas in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

Local residents and witnesses said Saudi fighter jets on Thursday struck several targets in the Faj Attan district and some other areas across Sana’a on Thursday.

Muhammad Ali, a Sana’a resident, said that Saudi warplanes keep pounding Yemen despite the truce.

“I live in Attan. There were airstrikes at dawn this morning and they hit some targets in the area. Warplanes have been hovering overhead around here in Sana’a since the ceasefire took hold,” he said.

Separately, Saudi helicopters on Wednesday struck al-Houta, the capital of the southern Lahij Province, killing at least eight people. The aerial raid hit a government building, a stadium and two homes in the region.

Saudi fighter jets intensified their bombing campaign against various Yemeni cities on the weekend, launching airstrikes on dozens of civilian houses and properties.
