'No Indication' Saudi Coalition Reopening Yemen Ports

'No Indication' Saudi Coalition Reopening Yemen Ports

It calls on Saudi Arabia to not target school, hospitals or other targets on its no-strike list and to broadly improve targeting.

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.

Al-Sammad said that with the blockade, the coalition "shut down all doors for peace and dialogue".

Jamie McGoldrick said the north of the country had 20 days' stocks of diesel, which were crucial for pumping water and fighting a huge cholera outbreak, and 10 days' stocks of gasoline, with no prospect of resupply soon.

Dujarric said the United Nations refugee agency expressed alarm at the worsening humanitarian situation, noting that at a center for displaced Yemenis in Sanaa "hundreds more people are approaching the facility daily, saying they are no longer able to meet basic needs or afford medical care".

A top leader of Yemen's Shiite rebels who are at war with a Saudi-led military coalition is vowing retaliation against the oil-rich kingdom over its disastrous blockade of the war-torn country.

Jon Stewart says he's 'stunned' by the allegations against Louis CK
On Tuesday morning, Stewart talked about that incident on Today , saying that he had been caught off guard by Ackerman's question. He said , "What do you think of the allegations against Louis C.K., and my first response was, 'What?' and then joke, joke".

The agency reported that the closure of Yemen's border has halted the delivery of emergency assistance for almost 280,000 internally displaced people, and stranded some of its staff outside the country while others lack fuel for transport, he said.

"The first step in this process will be taken within 24 hours and involves reopening all the ports in areas controlled by" Yemen's internationally recognized government, which the coalition backs, read the mission's statement.

Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a November 4 ballistic missile attack on Riyadh near its worldwide airport by the Shiite rebels known as Houthis.

Flights between Egyptian capital Cairo and Yemen's port city of Aden resumed after an 8-day hiatus, according to an official of Yemen's national flag carrier on Tuesday.

For its part, Iran long has denied supplying any arms to Yemen, though it has backed the Houthis and highlighted the high civilian casualties from the Saudi-led coalition's campaign of airstrikes.
