Over a hundred people have been killed and more than 300 others injured in a series of new Saudi airstrikes on the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, and the southern city of Ta’izz hours before a temporary halt to the attacks is scheduled to take effect.

In Saudi air raids on an arms depot near the capital, Sana’a, nearly 70 people were killed.

Residents said attacks on Mount Noqum, on the eastern outskirts of Sana’a, lasted until midday on Tuesday.

Medical sources said most of those killed and wounded by the explosions were civilians.

 According to the latest UN figures, the Saudi military campaign has so far claimed the lives of over 1,400 people and injured close to 6,000 people, roughly half of whom have been civilians.
