Warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition continued airstrikes targeting different part of Yemen on Monday, a day before a humanitarian cease-fire is due to go into effect.

The jets bombed the Saada region near the Saudi border, as well as Taiz in southwestern Yemen and the oil-producing Marib province in the east.

Saudi Airstrikes continue while people badly needed food, fuel and medicine to reach civilians in Yemen. 

The Houthi Revolutionaries said Sunday they had accepted the cease fire plan, which is scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Morocco's military said Monday it was investigating what happened to one of its F-16 jets that disappeared while taking part in the Saudi-led air campaign. This jet was bombing Yemen.

In a statement carried by the state media, the military said the jet was last seen Sunday evening and that a pilot from another jet in the same squadron did not see the pilot eject.

The Saudi bombed the Yemen hours after proposing a humanitarian ceasefire to start next week.

After six weeks of air strikes in support of exiled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, the Saudi destroyed Yemen infrastructure.

The Al-Masirah television said Marran and nearby Baqim were hit by more than 160 rockets on Saturday.

The channel said the coalition had launched more than 27 air raids across the province and fired more than 180 missile in Saada on the same day.

Strikes in Saada city brought down the telecommunication network, residents said.
