Heavy fighting on Yemens west coast kills hundreds

Heavy fighting on Yemens west coast kills hundreds

In the past week, the Houthis have fired four ballistic missiles heading toward Saudi Arabia, with one falling inside the Yemeni territories.

Mr Hadi is visiting the UAE on the advice of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, Yemen's state-run news agency, Saba, reported.

He also announced that humanitarian shipment permits were being granted regularly, and that humanitarian aid has been flowing continuously into all parts of Yemen.

Iran-backed Huthi rebels have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against neighbouring Saudi Arabia, which leads a military coalition that has fought the insurgents since 2015.

Previous U.N. efforts have failed to end the more than three-year-old conflict which pits the Houthis, who seized the capital Sanaa in 2014, against other Yemeni forces backed by a coalition loyal to exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and led by USA allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Clashes continue to escalate a few short miles from the major Yemeni aid port of al-Hodeidah, as Saudi-backed attackers continue to advance up the coast toward the city of 600,000 people, fighting the Shi'ite Houthi rebels.

"We are, at the present moment, in intense consultation", Guterres told reporters on Monday.

He also played a video that showed the destruction of Houthi capabilities in Yemen such as destroying a missile launcher in Saada and a factory to manufacture drones in Hajjah and targeting Houthis in Al-Jawf axis.

The council met behind closed doors to hear United Nations envoy Martin Griffiths report on his diplomatic efforts to keep the rebel-held port of Hodeida open to shipments of aid and commercial goods.

His efforts to convince the rebels to hand over control of Al Hodeidah to UN-supervised worldwide forces had failed, according to reports. He estimates that over a million people live in the greater Hodeidah area which is expected to be targeted in the offensive.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday called on all parties "to honour their commitments to work with the UN".

The U.S., he said, is closely following developments in Hodeidah and urged Emirati leaders to preserve "the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports".
