Yemen rebels hit Saudi tanker in Red Sea, Saudi Arabia claims”

The ballistic missile attack came hours after Human Rights Watch accused the Houthis of violating laws of war by indiscriminately firing rockets on populated areas inside Saudi Arabia.

Hodeidah port has become a launch pad for terrorist operations as well as for the smuggling of rockets and weapons, Al-Malki said while stressing that the command of the coalition forces will take all the necessary measures and means to maintain security and stability of maritime navigation and global trade on Bab-el-Mandeb strait and the Red Sea region.

"I am optimistic about that possibility", the United Nations chief added.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than two million and driven the country - already the poorest on the Arabian Peninsula - to the verge of starvation. As the conflict enters its fourth year, more than 22 million people - three-quarters of the population - need humanitarian aid and protection. "In addition, commercial imports, which account for most of Yemen's food, fuel, and medicine, must have the same freedom of movement".

Hodeidah port, on the Red Sea, handles the bulk of Yemen's imports, including critically-needed food and aid supplies.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates intervened in a civil war in Yemen in 2015 against the Houthis to restore the internationally recognized government of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
