Saudi-led airstrikes destroy air navigation system of Yemen's capital airport: spokesman

Controversial Saudi crown prince to open peace centre in 2018

Jamie McGoldrick of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said Tuesday the world body is aware of an announcement that the coalition was allowing deliveries to two ports in southern Yemen, AP reported.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen announced a suspension of border crossing via air, marine and land routes following a ballistic missile fired from Yemen targeting Saudi capital Riyadh on November 6. The humanitarian situation in the war-ravaged Yemen is now one of the deadliest in the world as starvation and lack of medical supplies leave millions at risk - the Saudi blockade of Yemen has added to the country's woes. While the language of the resolution calls to "increase efforts to adopt all necessary and appropriate measures to prevent civilian casualties and increase humanitarian access", it does not call for an end to USA support of the Saudi-led coaltion attacking Yemen. He said the flights would increase gradually over the coming days.

"The humanitarian impact of what is happening here right now is unimaginable", he told reporters in Geneva in a phone conference.

The Saudi-led coalition has said it will keep Hodeidah port closed until a United Nations verification programme is reviewed to ensure no weapons reach the Houthis.

The conflict began in 2015 when the Houthis took over Yemen's capital of Sana'a and the Yemeni government. "There are many sources of supply to Yemen, even during the past week or so".

Humanitarian agencies had been successful in preventing starvation and tackling a cholera outbreak that has sickened more than 900,000 people in six months and killed over 2,200. "The humanitarians are just holding things together, waiting for a peace process which is very much in the distance". Hariri said Sunday he will return to Beirut soon.

Yemen had commercial wheat stocks for three months for the entire population of 28 million and about 120 days of rice.

The blockade "is complicating what is already a catastrophic situation", McGoldrick said.
