Saudi alliance bombs Sanaa airport, blocking aid access

Yemenis protest against the blockade of aid by Saudi Arabia PressTV

Saudi Arabia and its allies tightened a longstanding blockade of Yemen's land, sea and air borders a week ago in response to a missile fired by Houthi rebels that was intercepted near Riyadh worldwide airport.

Abdallah Al-Mouallimi said the reopening of the ports was for the "safe transfer of humanitarian actors and humanitarian and commercial shipments" into Yemen.

United Nations call to allow aid into Yemen has been ignored by the Saudi Arabia regime.

"We would like to confirm that steps are being taken by the coalition, in full consultation and agreement with the government of Yemen, to start the process of reopening airports and seaports in Yemen to allow for the safe transfer of humanitarian actors and humanitarian and commercial shipments".

The coalition said on Monday it would re-open ports in areas held by allied forces.

Since Saudi Arabia has closed the Hodeideh Port in western Yemen, civilians have been at a high risk of starving to death or dying from an illness due to the lack of medicine.

The ports were closed after Houthis attacked Riyadh near its global airport through a ballistic missile on November 4.

For the ports in rebel-controlled or disputed territories, the Saudi mission has stated that it has asked for a team of experts from the U.N.to come and discuss the ways to ensure there is no smuggling of weapons.

Saudi Arabia and the USA have accused Iran of supplying the ballistic missile used in that attack.

Sammad said that with the blockade, the coalition "shut down all doors for peace and dialogue". Aden port, which is controlled by the coalition, does not have the capacity to handle the volume of humanitarian cargo and would mean hazardous cross-line deliveries.

He said many weapons have been smuggled to the Houthis through Hodeida and the small ports they control.

The US-backed coalition has been at war with the Shi'ite rebels, known as Houthis, since March 2015.

But the military intervention, which has triggered widespread criticism from the worldwide community, has left more than 10,000 people, most of which civilians, dead.

Flights between Egyptian capital Cairo and Yemen's port city of Aden resumed after an 8-day hiatus, according to an official of Yemen's national flag carrier on Tuesday.
