Yemen rebels say raid destroys airport navigation aids

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.

After two years of a devastating war, the Houthis still control much of Yemen's north while the south falls under the embattled President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, whose government is recognised by the worldwide community and who is supported by the Saudi-led coalition.

This isn't the first time Saudi planes have attacked the airport, and indeed strikes against aid delivery sites, the airport and Hodeidah Port, have been recurring throughout the war, making aid shipments all the more complicated even on those rare occasions when the Saudis will let such aid in at all.

However other ports, including Houthi-controlled Hodeidah - where some 80 percent of Yemen's food supplies enter - will remain closed until a United Nations verification regime is reviewed to ensure no weapons reach the Houthis, the statement said.

We heard [from the Saudis] that Aden and Mukalla ports are now open - but this is not enough.

Despite the Saudi announcement, a top leader of Yemen's Shiite rebels on Monday vowed retaliation against the oil-rich kingdom over its blockade of his war-torn country.

Muhrez said more importantly, humanitarian aid can not replace commercial shipments. Saudi Arabia and the United States have alleged that the ballistic missile used in the attack was supplied by Iran.

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". As quoted by The Hindu, the Saudi mission statement hopes that the team from the United Nations will help in preventing "the smuggling of weapons, ammunitions, missile parts and cash that are regularly being supplied by Iran and Iranian accomplices to the Houthi rebels".

Some 2,000 of those deaths were the result of a cholera epidemic that swept rebel-held areas this summer, with half a million people infected.

According to local media reports, millions of civilians could avoid the suffering if the Saudi regime reopens this vital port so that humanitarian groups can deliver aid to the people in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in Yemen in March 2015 to push back the Houthi rebels who control the capital Sanaa, and restore the government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to power.
