Scores of rebels killed in Yemen's western coast

Scores of rebels killed in Yemen's western coast

Up to three civilians were confirmed dead after a missile fired by terrorist Iranian-Houthi militias targeted Saudi Arabia's city of Jazan, the coalition fighting to restore legitimacy in Yemen has said. "But if Hodeidah city is attacked it might be hard as we can't risk sending our staff to the frontline".

The UAE has vowed it will take the port saying it is being used by Houthi rebels to smuggle in arms including missiles used to attack Saudi Arabia itself.

The United Arab Emirates has given the UN less than 48 hours to try to negotiate a Houthi ceasefire at the strategic Red Sea port of Hodeidah before it mounts an attack on the port through which the bulk of food, medicine and gas to the rest of Yemen is distributed.

Malki also commented on the Houthis' launch of four ballistic missiles towards Saudi Arabia during the past two months, adding that one of these missiles fell in Yemen.

Guterres, the United Nations chief, said there has been a recent "lull in the fighting" to allow for discussions and hopefully avoid a battle.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced three million and unleashed the world's most urgent humanitarian crisis in the impoverished Arab state which is struggling with a starvation and cholera epidemic, according to the United Nations.

He was last seen withdrawing more than $28,000 in Albuquerque in summer 1983 after returning from a two-week vacation in Europe. Hughes, discovered because of a passport fraud investigation, was arrested for desertion last week, the Air Force announced.

The spokesman for the Arab coalition in Yemen, Colonel Turki al-Malki, condemned the Houthi threat against relief organizations and voiced the importance of protecting relief workers.

The U.N. considers Yemen to be the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million people in need of assistance.

He said past and present United Nations efforts had been met with "intransigence" by the Houthis who he said have refused a political solution to end the crisis.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday called on all parties "to honour their commitments to work with the UN".

Mr Griffiths held several rounds of talks last week in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, which is held by the rebels.

The United States warned Monday that aid must flow through the Yemeni port of Hodeida amid reports that Emirati forces plan to seize it from Huthi rebels.
