Yemen Says Saudi-Led Coalition to Allow Commercial Flights

Saudi Arabia will 'reopen Yemen airports, seaports' after harsh criticism about humanitarian disaster

Saudi-Led Coalition Lifts Ban on Commercial Flights in and out of Yemen

The Saudi-led coalition carried out two air strikes on the defence ministry in Yemen's rebel-held capital Sanaa late Friday, witnesses and rebel media said, without reporting casualties.

A number of houses were also reportedly damaged in the strike.

This week, UN aid chief Mark Lowcock warned the Security Council (UNSC) that Yemen would face "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims", unless the blockade was lifted.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in neighbouring Yemen in March 2015, with the stated aim of rolling back Huthi rebel gains and restoring the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi to power.

Iran denies it supplies arms to the Houthis but has said the missile was a reaction to Saudi "aggression".

Yemen's Houthi forces have threatened to shoot down Saudi vessels found anywhere near Red Sea ports controlled by the rebels with the newly launched "underwater" torpedo missiles.

In an interview with Tasnim, Bakil al-Hamini referred to the tight air, land and sea blockade of Yemen and said, "The fact is that if it hadn't been for United Nations silence and U.S. support, Saudi Arabia would never have dared to impose (such) critical conditions on the people of Yemen".

It urged in a statement that humanitarian aid be allowed to enter the country immediately, as Yemen has registered one of the highest rates in postpartum deaths.

On Sunday, the head of the Houthi supreme revolutionary committee, Mohammed Ali Al Houthi, wrote on his Facebook page that the Houthis would target oil installations in Saudi Arabia with missiles if the coalition attacked Hodeidah.

The government-held southern Yemeni port of Aden was reopened on Wednesday, but ports in Houthi-held areas are still shut.
