Three Saudis killed in missile attack by Yemen rebels, state media says

The offensive also risks plunging the country into further violence as the coalition tries to wrest control of the strategic city from the rebels.

Two civilians were killed in a shelling, carried out on Saturday by Yemen's Houthi militants on the Saudi southwestern city of Jazan, the Saudi Al-Ekhbariya TV channel reported citing Saudi-led Arab coalition's statement.

The conflict has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced more than three million others.

The UN said last week that up to 250,000 people could die if the port is attacked or besieged.

The U.K. Department for International Development told aid agencies on Sunday that "the Emirates have informed us today that they will now give a 3-day grace period for the U.N.to leave the city".

Malki also said that legitimate forces in Yemen are preparing to cut the Houthis' route of supplies towards Saada.

Iran-backed Huthi rebels have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against neighbouring Saudi Arabia, which leads a military coalition that has fought the insurgents since 2015.

David De Gea wants public apology from Spain's Prime Minister
It personally didn't affect me much but obviously I have people close to me that are affected by this more than me. Jose Mourinho wants to tie De Gea down to a bumper new deal, but Real Madrid are continuing to show interest.

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.

The United Nations warned Friday that a military attack or siege on Hodeida would affect hundreds of thousands of civilians.

The Huthis captured Hodeida and Yemen's capital Sanaa in 2014, with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and their allies intervening on behalf of the government the following year.

The United States urged all parties of the conflict to ensure humanitarian access to the Yemeni people, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday.

"I have spoken with Emirati leaders and made clear our desire to address their security concerns while preserving the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports", he said.

Griffiths is working on a peace plan that involves the Houthi rebels giving up their ballistic missile arsenal in return for an end to Saudi-led air strikes and a political roadmap, ultimately paving the way for a transition out of the crisis.

A USA -backed, Saudi-led military coalition is fighting against the Houthis on behalf of the government of President Abd Rabbu Mansour al-Hadi, who lives in exile in Riyadh.
