Saudi intercepts missile fired by Houthi group

UN report accuses Iran and Saudis over Yemen

In a report unveiled in Sana'a on Tuesday, UNICEF said almost 2 million Yemeni children were out of school, a quarter of them since a Saudi Arabian-led war on the impoverished Arab country.

Four mobile cranes arrived in Hodeidah, the United Nations said on Monday, after the coalition agreed to let them into Yemen, where almost three years of war have pushed it to the verge of starvation.

"The port, in theory, is going be open to the 19th of this month".

More than three million children have been born in Yemen since the escalation in violence in March 2015, UN Children's Fund, UNICEF, said on Tuesday.

UN's World Food Programme (WFP) also said on Tuesday that 22.2 million Yemenis were in need of humanitarian assistance with almost 18 million not knowing where their next meal would come from.

The rebels have launched nearly 90 missile attacks on Saudi Arabia since the start of the Yemen conflict in 2015.

Noting that almost two million children were out of school, the report said a total of 256 schools were reported "totally destroyed" as of the end of September 2017, while 150 schools were occupied by displaced people, and 23 of them by armed groups.

"Obviously the feeling is that they extend this period so that the commercial goods can come in, but especially the fuel", she said, speaking from Sanaa.

A recent United Nations report on human rights abuses related to foreign intervention in Yemen documented a number of civilian casualties inflicted by Saudi-led coalition bombing. More than 11-million Yemeni children - virtually all - needed humanitarian assistance, Relano said.

In what the World Food Program, WFP, calls a major "breakthrough", the ship carrying the cranes was finally permitted to enter the port Tuesday.

A diphtheria outbreak in Yemen is "spreading quickly", with 678 cases and 48 associated deaths in four months, Fadela Chaib of the World Health Organization said.

While the report also faults Saudi Arabia, which is leading a coalition to fight the Houthis and support the internationally-backed government of Yemen, CNN reported, that " a significant portion of the report blames Iran" for its actions in Yemen.
