Saudi Warplanes Intensify Raids ahead of Truce, Use Banned Weapons

Few hours before a planned truce in Yemen, the US-backed warplanes intensified airstrikes on several areas across the country, with al-Manar correspondent stressing that internationally banned weapons have been used in the brutal attack.
Khalil al-Omari, our correspondent in the Yemeni capital, said that the airstrikes on Tuesday hit al-Naqem Mountain and al-Nahda neighborhood in Sanaa.
The strikes killed at least 19 people, the correspondent said, adding that the death toll of the airstrikes which targeted the province of Taez a day earlier reached 34.

Meanwhile, al-Omari quoted Yemeni doctor as saying that the Saudi coalition has been using internationally banned weapons.
“The situation is actually tragic since the aggression is harsh and barbaric,” doctor Kamala Ramima told al-Manar.
He said that the doctors across hospitals in Yemen are saying that the injuries indicate that the US-Saudi coalition is using internationally prohibited weapons.
The Saudi attacks come few hours before the five-day humanitarian truce. Earlier on Sunday, Yemeni army and Ansarullah revolutionaries agreed on the ceasefire, but warned against any violation by the Saudi Arabia or any of its allies.
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
On April 21, Saudi Arabia declared the end of the aggression, dubbed “Decisive Strom,” and the start of another campaign called “Restoring Hope.”
