United Nations call to allow aid into Yemen has been ignored by the Saudi Arabia regime. The coalition recently tightened its blockade after Houthi rebels fired a rocket at the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

The strike comes just a day after Saudi ambassador to the UN Abdallah Al-Mouallimi agreed to reopen some ports to allow aid in.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia's United Nations ambassador said the coalition would take steps to ease the blockade but would not reopen a key rebel-held port to aid shipments unless tighter inspections were put in place. The Saudi closure had drawn worldwide condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia announced Monday that the Saudi-led coalition fighting Shiite rebels in Yemen will begin reopening airports and seaports in the Arab world's poorest country, days after closing them over a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh.

On Monday Saudi agreed to reopen ports in government controlled areas, but demanded extra security measures be put in place around the rebel controlled port of Hodeida.

We heard [from the Saudis] that Aden and Mukalla ports are now open - but this is not enough. The Houthis have denied that.

Manchester City not invincible, says Wenger
This season, not much has changed. "I will sit down with the board every end of the season and see where we go from there". Arsenal, who trail City by 12 points in sixth, host Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby on Saturday.

This isn't the first time Saudi planes have attacked the airport, and indeed strikes against aid delivery sites, the airport and Hodeidah Port, have been recurring throughout the war, making aid shipments all the more complicated even on those rare occasions when the Saudis will let such aid in at all.
