At least 3 civilians, including a medical worker, were killed in Saudi air strikes on Yemen, Al-Alam News Network reports.

A medic was killed after Saudi warplanes targeted a medical center in Mustaba district in Hajjah province on Sunday.

Two Yemeni civilians lost their lives and two others sustained injuries as Saudi fighter jets pounded a residential area in Baqim district in the province of Sa'ada.

The Saudi warplanes also targeted the provinces of Amran, Lahij and Jawf.

They also attacked a district in Hudaydah province twice.

There were no immediate reports on the extent of the damage or the number of casualties.

The Saudi attacks were carried out despite an announcement by Riyadh on Saturday, saying there would be a five-day halt in the military aggression starting from 11:59 pm local time (2059 GMT) on Sunday.
