Saudi-led air strikes hit Yemen capital hours before ceasefire

Saudi-led air strikes pounded the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Tuesday, hours before a five-day truce was set to begin between the alliance of Gulf Arab nations and the Iran-allied Houthi militia which controls much of the country. Residents said three air strikes hit a base for army units loyal to the Houthis in the north of the capital, sending up a column of smoke. In the southern port of Aden, witnesses said the alliance bombed Houthi positions, and local armed groups were still fighting the rebels in the city and throughout Yemen’s south. On Monday, they also exchanged heavy artillery fire on the border.
