Three dead in south of Saudi Arabia from missile attack: state media

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

An alarming 22.2 million people in Yemen - the Arab world's poorest country - need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). "I hope that it will be possible to avoid a battle for Hudeida", Guterres said.

The United Nations relocated members of its global staff from Hodeidah on Monday.

Clashes continue to escalate a few short miles from the major Yemeni aid port of al-Hodeidah, as Saudi-backed attackers continue to advance up the coast toward the city of 600,000 people, fighting the Shi'ite Houthi rebels.

He also announced that humanitarian shipment permits were being granted regularly, and that humanitarian aid has been flowing continuously into all parts of Yemen.

Following the closed-door council meeting, Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia, who is council president this month, called for de-escalation and said the top United Nations body would be "closely" following developments.

Almost 10,000 people have been killed since the alliance launched its intervention in Yemen in March 2015, contributing to what the United Nations has called the world s worst humanitarian crisis.

He said in a statement that he had spoken with leaders of the United Arab Emirates and "made clear our desire to address their security concerns while preserving the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports". Coalition warplanes and warships launched strikes targeting the Houthis, they added. The coalition aims to restore the government of self-exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. It has damaged Yemen's infrastructure, crippled its health system and pushed the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation.

Save the Children said on Sunday that it continued to treat "tens of thousands of children in Hodeidah for acute malnutrition, and diseases like diphtheria and malaria".
