Yemen´s Houthis fire ballistic missile toward Saudi Arabia

More than 13,600 people have been killed since the onset of the Saudi-led war on Yemen in 2015.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia has been leading a coalition of nine Arab countries in airstrikes against Yemeni rebels and their allies.

More than three-quarters of Yemen's population - 22.2 million people - are now dependent on some form of assistance in Yemen, the United Nations says. Plans also include installing four cranes in three southern ports held by the government to boost the flow of imports, according to coalition officials.

In 2017, global donors provided $1.65 billion of the $2.34 billion requested by the United Nations and humanitarian partners in Yemen.

The UN says Yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with about eight million people on the brink of starvation, a cholera epidemic that has infected one million people, and economic collapse in what was already one of the region's poorest countries.

The kingdom said Monday the coalition it heads in Yemen would also "lead the expansion of additional Yemeni ports" to receive cargo and humanitarian assistance, ensure multiple daily flights of cargo planes carrying aid from Saudi Arabia to Yemen's Marib province, and establish "safe passage corridors" to ensure transportation of aid to non-governmental organizations operating inside Yemen. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights reported a year ago that airstrikes remained the single largest cause of civilian casualties.

Bahraini Information Affairs Minister Ali al-Romaihi denounced recurrent Houthi attacks targeting cities in Saudi Arabia with tens of Iran-made ballistic missiles in a unsafe escalation aimed to undermine the security of the kingdom, the Gulf and the Arab countries.

The appeal, made on behalf of United Nations agencies and humanitarian partners, came as 11.3-million people "urgently require assistance to survive", United Nations aid agency OCHA said in a statement.

Only in the third financial quarter of 2017, German arms sale to Saudi Arabia accounted for US$550 million.

The British government has also been criticised for continuing to allow arms exports to Saudi Arabia - journalists and aid agencies have found evidence that UK-made weapons were used in attacks on schools and hospitals.

According to the World Health Organization's latest count, the cholera outbreak has killed 2,167 people since the end of April and is suspected to have infected more than one million people.
