Civilians Killed in Houthi Shelling of Saudi Arabia’s Jazan – Reports
He said the UN's Yemen envoy, Martin Griffiths, was shuttling between the capital of Yemen Sanaa and also the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
The U.N. Security Council met behind closed doors on Monday at the request of Britain to be briefed on the situation after heavy fighting erupted near Hodeidah on Friday and Saturday. "We left it in his hands for the time being", Nebenzia told reporters. "I hope that it will be possible to avoid a battle for Hodeidah".
Last month, the group fired a salvo of missiles at the capital Riyadh, saying it was targeting economic targets.
The coalition backing Yemen government troops has been closing in on Hodeida after accusing Houthi rebels of smuggling weapons through the port.
Malki, quoted by the official Saudi Press Agency, did not identify the type of "projectile" but said it was "launched deliberately to target civilians" and warned of retaliation.
Saudi sources said the United Nations special envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, was in the Houthi-controlled capital, Sanaa, to discuss the possibility of worldwide control of the port, according to the Guardian.
Eleven humanitarian aid agencies, including Oxfam and Save the Children, separately urged British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to threaten to cut off British support to the coalition if it attacks Hodeida.
Despite the uptick in United States refueling, military experts say the UAE is less dependent on the Pentagon for operations in Hodeidah.
Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including Hudeida, in 2014. Al-Monitor reported in November that USA refueling support to the coalition more than doubled over the past year.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday expressed concern at the situation in Hudeida and called on all parties to "honour their commitments to working with the United Nations".
He said in a statement that he had spoken with leaders of the United Arab Emirates and "made clear our desire to address their security concerns while preserving the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports".
The United Nations has warned that up to 250,000 people were at risk if the coalition moves ahead with an all-out offensive to take the Red Sea port. "We remind you that three years into the conflict, active United States participation in Saudi-led hostilities against Yemen's Houthis has never been authorized by Congress, in violation of the Constitution".
An alarming 22.2 million people in Yemen - the Arab world's poorest country - need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
