Saudi-led air raids, clashes shatter Yemen truce

Published July 28th, 2015 - 02:07 GMT

Saudi-led coalition warplanes resumed airstrikes on Yemen rebels on Tuesday, marking the complete failure of a unilaterally declared humanitarian truce, AFP reported.

The five-day truce that began Monday got off to a rocky start, with clashes in the north and south regions of the war-torn country.

Airstrikes on Tuesday targeted Houthi rebels north of Aden, which was mostly recaptured by forces loyal to exiled President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi last week.

Coalition raids also hit a rebel convoy near Sabr and a rebel-occupied building in Jaawala, both north of Aden.

Fighting around Aden has left 28 dead since Monday, including 22 rebels, two civilians and two pro-Hadi southern fighters, health chief Al-Khader Laswar told AFP.
