Civilians injured in Saudi-led strikes on Yemen capital

Yemeni men and security forces in Aden Yemen

According to defenseworld.net, the announcement comes after Saudi air defense forces reported that they had intercepted a ballistic missile in midair that was sacked from Yemen over northern Riyadh.

The United Nations, along with dozens of other aid groups, are raising alarm at the blockade imposed on Yemen by the the USA -backed, Saudi-led coalition there, saying Thursday it could lead to "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades".

Sohaib Al-Hamdan, a travel agent, said: "The resumption of flights will help to ferry Yemeni and non-Yemeni passengers bound for Yemen, who have been waiting in transit at various locations".

Yemen lies beside the southern mouth of the Red Sea, one of the most important trade routes in the world for oil tankers, which pass near Yemen's shores while heading from the Middle East through the Suez Canal to Europe. This follows another attack on October 30 when a missile was sacked from inside of Yemen at a Saudi army base in the Aseer province on the border between the two countries.

The Huthis continue to control the capital Sanaa and much of Yemen's north.

A Saudi-led alliance has lifted a blockade of two key airports in Yemen, broadcaster Al Arabiya reported, amid warnings that millions in the war-torn country could starve without deliveries of food aid. "When the objective of those measures ends, we will reopen those ports with introducing some needed amendments and reforms", Al-Mouallimi said.

The missile which was intercepted on November 4 has escalated tensions between regional foes Saudi Arabia and Iran, which Riyadh blames for supplying the missile to the Houthis. But ports in Houthi-held areas have remained shut.
