'No Indication' Saudi Coalition Reopening Yemen Ports

Coalition to Gradually Reopen Yemen's Seaports, Airports

The House vote came a day before the top United Nations aid official in Yemen called on the Saudi-led coalition to open all Yemen's sea ports urgently, saying it risked undoing the fight against cholera and hunger, with 7 million already in "famine-like conditions". The missile was intercepted near the capital of the country.

Iran denies arming the Houthis and blames the conflict in Yemen on Riyadh. He said the flights would increase gradually over the coming days.

The United Nations has listed Yemen as the world's top priority humanitarian crisis, with more than 17 million people lacking food, seven million of whom are at risk of starvation.

"This halted the only flights at Sanaa airport - those of the United Nations and other worldwide organisations delivering humanitarian assistance", the rebel-run General Authority for Civil Aviation said.

Yemeni officials in Sanaa, which is held by the rebels, said the airport's runway had also been damaged, claiming fix crews were already at work.

The UN has warned that an already catastrophic humanitarian crisis in Yemen was worsening each day that aid shipments remained blocked. "The runway, taxiway, ramp, terminal and air traffic control tower were not hit and are in good condition". "Without Sanaa airport and Hodeidah and Salif seaports fully functioning and able to receive cargo, the dire humanitarian situation in Yemen will continue", Dujarric told reporters in NY. Since then, Yemen has suffered devastating and indiscriminate airstrikes launched by a Saudi-led coalition to restore Hadi to power. The coalition closed all Yemen air, land and seaports last week in response to a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh.

He said that a United Nations verification and inspection mechanism already in place could work with the Saudi-led coalition on implementing new procedures but that keeping ports closed in the interim was not viable.

The blockade "is complicating what is already a catastrophic situation", McGoldrick said. But the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hodeida remains closed.

So far, Saudi wants to bring supplies into Yemen via the ports of Jizan and Aden, a plan McGoldrick said was unsafe and slow.

Those ports are in Yemeni cities of Aden, Mocha and Mukalla. And landing aid there would also involve having to cross front lines to deliver it.
