The United Nations had warned the total blockade could cause starvation in the impoverished country where war has killed at least 10,000 people in the last 2-1/2 years and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) expressed more concerns on Sunday.

The United Nations (UN) said on Friday that the coalition is still blocking desperately needed UN aid deliveries to Yemen despite the re-opening of the Yemeni port of Aden and also a land border crossing.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the Saudi-led coalition for more than two and half years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

The Saudi-led military alliance is fighting in support of the internationally recognised government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who is based in the southern port of Aden. Today this was reported by Al Arabiya channel.

Meanwhile, Abdulmalik al-Houthi, the Houthi leader, reportedly said that if "the Saudi-led coalition wants oil ships to be safe then it better not invade" Hodeidah.

Commenting about the recent Yemen missile attack targeting the worldwide airport in Riyadh, he said the missile command of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees demonstrated it capability to target the capitals of all hostile countries.

On Sunday, the head of the Houthi supreme revolutionary committee, Mohammed Ali Al Houthi, wrote on his Facebook page that the Houthis would target oil installations in Saudi Arabia with missiles if the coalition attacked Hodeidah. "We can do anything", he said, adding that it was the Houthis' "legitimate right" to do so.

About two-thirds of Yemen's population relies on imported supplies, said the aid groups, which include CARE, Save the Children and Islamic Relief. But ports in Houthi-held areas have remained shut.
