Saudi fighter jets bombarded the Yemeni capital city of Sana'a with banned chemical weapons early on Monday, leaving dozens of people dead and injured.

According to reports, the Saudi warplanes used prohibited bombs and missiles in their Monday's airstrikes on Sana'a and claimed the lives of scores of civilians.

Elsewhere in Yemen, at least 17 civilians were killed and dozens of others sustained serious injuries after the saudi's airstrikes hit Yemen's Ta'izz.

Additionally, the Saudi air raids pounded the city of al-Hazm in Jawf province and killed 18 people.

The Saudi airstrikes continue as the representatives of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement have headed for the Swiss city of Geneva to attend the UN-brokered peace talks aimed at ending the Saudi aggression against the Arab country.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 82 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh, FNA reports.

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 4,613 civilians, mostly women and children.
