Saudi warplanes have once again pounded various cities across Yemen.

On Tuesday, a number of people were killed in an air raid that hit a house in the southern Yemeni province of Dhale.

Saudi fighter jets bombarded different areas in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a as well as the western province of al-Hudaydah.

In a retaliatory move, Houthi militants, shelled some areas across Yemen’s border with Saudi Arabia.

Speaking from Sana'a, Press TV’s correspondent Yousef Mawry, meanwhile, said on Tuesday that despite the Saudi claims of allowing the delivery of aid during the five-day ceasefire which ended on Sunday, many Yemenis have been deprived of receiving humanitarian assistance.

UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen Johannes Van der Klaauw said on May 10 that over 1,600 people have been killed and more than 6,200 injured in Yemen since conflict intensified there in late March.
