Saa, May 18: At the end of five full days of a humanitarian truce, Saudi Arabia has reignited its war machine, pounding Yemen with missiles and artillery. Saudi Arabia resumed its offensive on the impoverished Arab country hours after the end of the ceasefire, which expired at 11 p.m. on Sunday, with Saudi warplanes pounding a number of civilian and military centres in the Aden, Hajjah, and Sa’ada provinces, Iran’s Press TV reported on Monday. In Aden, warplanes fired five rockets at the districts of Attawahi, Khormaksar, the Political Security Bureau in Fath, as well as the Ras Marmot barracks belonging to the Yemeni val forces. The Aden airport and the al-Sawlaban military barracks in the city were also hit with three rockets. Rockets also landed in the Sahar, Zahir and Ghamr districts of Sa’ada province, while the Saudi artillery targeted Dalih and Ghawr mountains in the northern Yemeni border areas. (ians)
