20 Saudi Rockets Fired at Sa’ada, Hajjah in Shadow of Truce Rhetoric


20 Saudi Rockets Fired at Sa'ada, Hajjah in Shadow of Truce Rhetoric

TEHRAN (FNA)– Saudi Arabia fired more than 20 mortar shells and rockets at the Yemeni provinces of Sa’ada and Hajjah on Sunday despite a declared truce.  According to Al-Maydeen television, Saudi troops fired more than 20 mortar shells and rockets at Sa’ada and Hajjah on Sunday.

The Saudi troops also fired artillery shells at “Faj Harad” district in Hajjah.

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 3,812 civilians, mostly women and children, according to FNA’s independent tally.

On April 21 and May 12, Saudi Arabia declared end to Yemen airstrikes after weeks of bombings, but airstrikes are still underway.

The five-day 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.

Yemen's Revolutionaries Find Terrorists' Tunnels under Aden

TEHRAN (FNA)– The Ansarullah fighters along with army units found a large number of tunnels through which the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists and pro-Hadi militants infiltrated into different regions near the city of Aden.

The 40-meter-long tunnels were found on Sunday, as the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters intensified their offensive against al-Qaeda terrorists and Pro-Hadi militants in the strategic city of Aden.

Hundreds of terrorists are said to have used the tunnels to carry out terrorist attacks against the people and the popular fighters across the Muslim country.

The tunnels link the city of al-Khadhra to Yemen’s international airport and al-Sulban military base.
