Saudi Arabia to reopen Yemen's air and seaports within next 24 hours

Muprhy " s speech coincided with the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voting on Monday for a resolution declaring that U.S. military assistance to Saudi Arabia in its war in Yemen is not authorized under previous legislation which has given the president power to combat terror overseas and invade Iraq in 2003.

Thousands of people have been killed in the fighting, which pitches a coalition led by Riyadh in support of the internationally-recognised government of Yemen against Iran-backed Houthi rebels. The move came after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired towards Riyadh, which it blamed on Tehran.

The Saudi U.N. ambassador denied that there has been an embargo, saying "a temporary procedure" was taken for a few days to ensure the safety and security of Yemenis and Saudis, and that supplies were available. It calls on Saudi Arabia to not target school, hospitals or other targets on its no-strike list and to broadly improve targeting.

Meanwhile, Aden's port - which is controlled by allies of Saudi Arabia - does not have the capacity, according to the United Nations, to handle the necessary volume of humanitarian cargo and would mean hazardous cross-line deliveries.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in neighbouring Yemen in March 2015 to push back the rebels who control the capital Sanaa, in an attempt to restore the Hadi government to power.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia's United Nations ambassador said the coalition would take steps to ease the blockade but would not reopen a key rebel-held port to aid shipments unless tighter inspections were put in place. "This will have no impact on our operations once they resume", Mr McGoldrick said.

"The humanitarian aspect of this is something we need to address immediately because we can't have those ports closed or those airports closed while we wait for discussions on new (inspection) mandates to go ahead".

The UN says the closure of Hodeida port puts millions of civilians in the north at risk.

He also said that the more the blockade tightens, the more the Houthis will develop their abilities to "respond to the assault of the enemy".
