Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 25 air strikes on the Yemeni capital of Sana'a in 2 hours, as the civilian death toll surpassed 2650.

The Saudi fighter jets continued their air raids on Yemen for the 25th consecutive days, and conducted 25 air strikes on Sana'a in just 2 hours, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television said.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 25 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed over 2,655 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children. The attacks have also left thousands of people injured.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Five Persian Gulf States - Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait - and Egypt that are also assisted by Israel and backed by the US declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued on March 26.
