US Praises Saudi Promise to Keep Yemen Port Open for 30 Days

US Praises Saudi Promise to Keep Yemen Port Open for 30 Days

On the same day as the missile launch, the United Nations human rights office said it had confirmed the deaths of 115 Yemeni civilians by airstrikes carried out by the Saudi-led coalition waging war in Yemen.

Developments in the conflict between Yemeni Houthi rebels and Saudi Arabia amid Yemen's civil war, in which the Saudis have backed the government, could destabilise the region, a leading analyst has said. There were no reports of casualties or damage.

The signatories included eight Nobel peace laureates, religious pioneers, Western officials and rights safeguards, and also U.S. Congresswomen Barbara Lee and Pramila Jayapal, and Congressman Ro Khanna, all Democrats.

Saudi air defenses shot down the ballistic missile, the Saudi-led coalition said.

Earlier this month, the Houthis claimed they fired a missile at an under-construction nuclear plant in the United Arab Emirates, which is part of the Saudi coalition.

They have been fighting a war against forces loyal to Yemen's President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi and a Saudi-led coalition backing him since March 2015. The forces successfully intercepted and destroyed the missile that was directed at residential areas in Riyadh.

"There is clear evidence that the missiles that landed on Saudi Arabia come from Iran", she said.

"We must all act cooperatively to expose the crimes of the Tehran regime and do whatever is needed to make sure they get the message".

Haley said the Security Council could strengthen the provisions in that resolution or adopt a new resolution banning Iran from all activities related to ballistic missiles. "If we do not, then Iran will bring the world deeper into a broadening regional conflict", Haley told the council.

"Weapons used by the Yemenis today are leftovers in the bases of previous governments".

Via state media, Zarif called the US moves provocative and said USA officials were trying to "hide their support for the bombardment of the innocent Yemenis through such accusations". At least 10,000 people killed, two million displaced from their homes, and millions more on the brink of starvation.

The State Department on Monday called for the delivery of World Food Program shipments to Yemen amid a worsening humanitarian crisis.
