Yemen and US Policy: Serious Rethinking Is Imperative

Saudi Arabia eases blockade, reopens Yemen's Hudaydah port

Years of conflict and worldwide embargo have caused a starvation in Yemen.

"We're monitoring these developments", Haq told reporters in NY.

"We stress the critical importance of resuming also commercial imports, in particular fuel supplies for our humanitarian response - transportation and so on - and for water pumping, Laerke said".

The airport in the capital of Sanaa will reopen to United Nations aircraft, and the seaport of Hodeida will be able to receive urgent humanitarian aid, the coalition statement said.

The commercial blockade is aggravating the food crisis, "leading to a significant increase in child deaths from acute malnutrition and preventable diseases", it said in a statement. He also said the world body has "made clear the tremendous amount of needs on the ground".

The Saudi-led coalition closed air, land and sea access to the Arabian Peninsula country for all humanitarian workers and organisations on November 6, saying the blockade would halt arms from reaching Houthi rebels.

Conte turns focus straight on Liverpool after Chelsea seal Champions League progression
Said former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand on BT Sport: "He's definitely world class". Liverpool in the second half had opportunities to score other goals.

The U.N. humanitarian chief in Yemen says the closure of the country's main airport and two seaports by a Saudi-led coalition has threatened gains made in containing cholera and the risk of starvation in the war-torn country.

Saudi and US officials have said that the missile fired by the Houthis was manufactured in Iran. "If that were to happen that would be a very welcome and critically important development".

About 7 million people in Yemen, out of a population of 27 million, depend entirely on food aid, and 4 million rely on aid groups for clean water.

The spokesperson of the coalition, Turki al-Maliki said on Friday, that the missile launched towards the city of Riyadh entered through the port of Hodeidah.

The move comes amid mounting calls from worldwide aid groups, warning that mass starvation and lack of medication is going to soon be killing thousands of civilians daily in Yemen. The missile was struck down but it was the farthest a projectile by the rebels, also known as Houthis, had penetrated into the kingdom.
