Saudi airstrikes against the Yemeni people continue unabated in the 17th day of Riyadh’s aggression on the impoverished Arab country.

According to the Yemeni media, Saudi fighter jets targeted the al-Dailami airbase in the military airport of the capital city of Sana’a early on Saturday.

No report has yet been released on the possible casualties of the raid.

The Saudi airstrikes also hit the al-Matma district in the northwestern province of Jawf, the reports added.

Meanwhile, the southern city of Aden witnessed the heaviest Saudi attacks since the beginning of Riyadh’s aggression.

Aden's residents added that the assaults struck a stadium and several checkpoints in the embattled city.

On Friday, the United Nations urged a daily "humanitarian pause" of a few hours in Yemen, saying the war-ravaged people are in dire need of medical and humanitarian assistance.

Earlier in the day, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) announced that they had dispatched two planes to Sana’a to deliver over 30 tonnes of medical equipment.

We expect an "upsurge in malnutrition across the country,” said Julien Harneis, a representative of UNICEF in Yemen, adding, "It was already a country where 60 percent of the country was living under the poverty line, that's not going to get any better.”

A spokesperson for the Yemeni army, fighting alongside Ansarullah fighters, said on Thursday that the Saudi aggression has so far claimed the lives of over 1,000 Yemeni people, including 200 children.

Saudi Arabia’s air campaign against the Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement started on March 26, without a UN mandate, in a bid to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

On March 25, the embattled president fled the southern city of Aden, where he had sought to set up a rival power base, to the Saudi capital, Riyadh, after Ansarullah revolutionaries advanced on Aden.
