Saudi-led coalition bombs airport runway in Yemen's capital

Saudi-led coalition bombs airport runway in Yemen's capital

The Saudi-led coalition hopes that will prevent "the smuggling of weapons, ammunitions, missile parts and cash that are regularly being supplied by Iran and Iranian accomplices to the Houthi rebels", the statement said.

The war gripped Yemen is facing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis that is set to affect millions of civilians, as aid shipments have been blocked from entering in the country via land, air, and sea.

Saudi Arabia's United Nations ambassador is denying that there has been an embargo on Yemen, saying "a temporary procedure" was taken for a few days to ensure the safety and security of Yemenis and Saudis and supplies were available.

The humanitarian calamity in Northern Yemen, fueled by Saudi Arabia's blockade, has been killing large numbers of people, a result of lack of medicine and increasingly scarce food.

An air raid by the Saudi-led military coalition put Yemeni airport in the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa out of service on Tuesday, jeopardizing relief shipments to a country on the brink of starvation, the state news agency SABA reported.

"If we don't have the fuel to deliver our supplies to millions of starving Yemeni families, we will continue to witness more children dying of hunger", Muhrez said.




The top United Nations aid official in Yemen called on the Saudi-led coalition on Tuesday to open all Yemen's sea ports urgently, saying it risked damaging the fight against cholera and hunger, with 7 million already in "famine-like conditions".

Is Yemen Saudi Arabia's Ukraine?

The blockade "is complicating what is already a catastrophic situation", McGoldrick said.

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.

The first step towards the reopening is expected to be taken within 24 hours of the announcement made on Monday, however, at the time of writing, there are no media reports of any action taken by the coalition in the direction.

Flights between Egyptian capital Cairo and Yemen's port city of Aden resumed after an 8-day hiatus, according to an official of Yemen's national flag carrier on Tuesday. The resolution does not address whether US support for the Saudi-led coalition in the conflict triggers the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which lawmakers are split over.
