Saudi warplanes carry out over thirty raids on the airport of Yemen's southern city of Aden within a few hours.

Late on Sunday, the Saudi jets also targeted other locations in Aden, furthering the destruction of the city's infrastructure.

Earlier in the day, air raids were launched against the governor's office in Aden's Crater district.

Fighter jets also carried out three strikes on the port city of al-Hudaydah, targeting an air defense base for multiple times.

Three people sustained injuries as the northern Yemeni city of Sa'ada was bombed.

Saudi military also shelled various targets in the Sa'ada's Ghamar district.

Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 - without a UN mandate - in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country's fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

On April 21, Riyadh announced the end of the first phase of its unlawful military operation, but airstrikes have continued with Saudi bombers targeting different areas across the country in a new phase.

On Friday, the World Health Organization said 1,244 Yemenis lost their lives and 5,044 others were injured from March 19 to April 27. Hundreds of women and children are among the victims, according to the WHO.
