Key ports for humanitarian shipments to Yemen remain closed

UN says Saudi's closure of Yemen's seaports undoes progress in fight against famine and cholera

The House of Representatives on Monday held its first ever debate over US military engagement in the civil war raging in Yemen and passed a non-binding resolution calling on parties to wage the conflict humanely and work toward bringing it to an end.

World Health Organization officials say more than 8,600 people have died since fighting broke out in Yemen in March 2015.

The Saudi-led coalition, which is fighting Houthi rebels and is trying to restore the government of Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, has requested UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to send experts to Riyadh to develop a more robust verification and inspection mechanism to prevent the smuggling of weapons and missile parts into Yemen.

Saudi Arabia's United Nations ambassador is denying that there has been an embargo on Yemen, saying "a temporary procedure" was taken for a few days to ensure the safety and security of Yemenis and Saudis and supplies were available.

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.


However, Mr McGoldrick said there was "no indication" yet of the blockade being lifted. "The continued closure by the Saudi-led coalition of critical seaports and airports is aggravating an already dire humanitarian situation".

Zarif's plan calls for "a ceasefire and an immediate end to all military operations, unimpeded urgent humanitarian and medical assistance to the people of Yemen, resumption of Yemeni-led and Yemeni-owned national dialogue, with the participation of the representatives of all political parties and social groups, and establishment of an inclusive national unity government".

The Houthis control most of the north, including Sana'a and its worldwide airport, while the Saudi-led coalition dominates the airspace. 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 move came after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired towards Riyadh, which it blamed on Tehran.

Saudi Arabia and the US have accused Iran of supplying the ballistic missile used in that attack. More than 2,000 Yemenis have died in a cholera outbreak now affecting almost one million people, AFP reported. The Houthis have denied that.
