Saudi Arabia dealt in Yemen airstrike

Saudi-led blockade could 'starve and kill' millions in Yemen: UN US-Saudi Blockade on Yemen may Result in Worst Famine in Decades: UN

Yemeni men and security forces in Aden, Yemen, November 5, 2017.

Air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition left at least three civilians wounded in Yemen's rebel-held capital Sanaa, witnesses said. Witnesses reported that the aircraft continued to ply the skies after the attacks.

'The coalition re-opened Aden and Seiyoun airports, ' said Murad al-Halimi, the transport minister of the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, according to Saudi broadcaster Al Arabiya.

The coalition said on Monday it would close all air, land and sea ports in Yemen to stem the flow of arms to the Houthis from Iran, after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired toward its capital Riyadh.

- An independent group of world leaders are calling on Saudi Arabia and its partners in a coalition fighting Shiite rebels in Yemen to lift their blockade of the war-ravaged nation to avert a humanitarian disaster.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in neighbouring Yemen in March 2015, with the stated aim of rolling back Huthi rebel gains and restoring the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi to power.

United Nations aid chief Mark Lowcock told the Security Council this week that unless the blockade is lifted, Yemen will face "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims".

More than 2,000 Yemenis have died in a cholera outbreak now affecting almost one million people.
