The Saudi-led military coalition battling the Houthi movement in Yemen has allowed work to resume at the Port of Aden

The Saudi-led coalition sealed off Yemen after Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Houthi rebels in Yemen toward the Saudi capital city of Riyadh on November 4.

Al-Mouallimi said the Saudi-led coalition wants tougher inspections at the port of Hodeida, which is controlled by Houthi Shiite rebels, because current United Nations -monitored inspections only check large ships, and "in the case of small and medium-size ships there is hardly any inspection that takes place in the port or anywhere else".

Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a November 4 ballistic missile attack on Riyadh near its worldwide airport by the Shiite rebels known as Houthis. The Houthis have denied that.

McGoldrick emphasized on the fact that United Nations aid was the main lifeline for most of Yemen's population, seven million of whom are at risk of starvation.

"I would like to draw your urgent attention to the extremely appalling situation in Yemen, caused by aggression, indiscriminate targeting of civilians and a blockade, imposing intolerable suffering on the Yemeni people", Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote, calling for worldwide action to end the mass destruction in Yemen, according to a transcript of his remarks posted on the Foreign Ministry's website. "The right choice for the Saudi regime and its allies is to stop the war, end the blockade and engage in direct dialogue", Samad said at the rally.

All humanitarian flights to Sanaa airport and all humanitarian and commercial vessel movements to the seaports of Hudaydah and Saleef have remained blocked since November 6, when the Saudi-led military coalition imposed a land, sea and air blockade on Yemen, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric quoted the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) as saying. More than two-thirds of the people in need and 80 per cent of all cholera cases in Yemen are closest to the two ports, which are both in rebel-held territory.

On Monday Saudi agreed to reopen ports in government controlled areas, but demanded extra security measures be put in place around the rebel controlled port of Hodeida. The coalition closed all Yemen air, land and seaports last week in response to a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh. But the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hodeida remains closed.
