Remember that ceasefire you don't remember there was LOL!
The Saudi-led coalition has reportedly conducted fresh air strikes on Yemen, hours after it said it had ended a four-week air campaign against Houthi fighters.
The deputy governor of Aden, Nayef al-Bakri, told Al Jazeera that an air raid targeted tanks used by the Houthis and their allied forces in the southern port city.
Air strikes were also reported in the central city of Taiz, where Houthis seized the headquarters of a brigade loyal to the government.
The headquarters of the 35th Armoured Brigade on the city's northern outskirts fell after heavy fighting on Wednesday which left "dozens dead and wounded", an army officer told the AFP news agency from inside the base.
Also on Wednesday, witnesses reported ground fighting between rebels and pro-government forces in Aden and the city of Lahj
