Saudi forces lift Yemen airport blockade

The coalition has intensified air strikes in Yemen since the Houthis fired a ballistic missile at the Saudi capital, Riyadh, a week ago.

The Huthi rebel media outlet Al-Masirah also reported the two air strikes.

Despite the reopening of Wadea, however, and the allowing of limited ships into southern Aden port, United Nations officials say that the Saudi-led coalition is still blocking all of their aid deliveries into the country, continuing the siege.

The United Nations had warned that a total blockade could cause a starvation that could kill millions in Yemen, where 2-1/2 years of war has killed at least 10,000 people and unleashed starvation and disease in the already impoverished country.

Yemen's Houthi forces have threatened to shoot down Saudi vessels found anywhere near Red Sea ports controlled by the rebels with the newly launched "underwater" torpedo missiles.

A Saudi-led, US -backed coalition allied with Yemen's internationally recognized government has been at war with the rebels since March 2015.

"Washington aids the forces of aggression, politically and militarily, and has pushed them into risky pitfalls", Houthi spokesman Muhammad Abdul Salam said on the group's Al-Masirah TV channel.

Recall that the armed conflict in Yemen started in 2014 year.

Iran denies it supplies arms to the Houthis but has said the missile was a reaction to Saudi "aggression".

Growing complaints about the humanitarian catastrophe in Saudi-blockaded Yemen have led the Saudi government to announce that the al-Wadea border crossing is being reopened.

The coalition tightened its blockade on Yemen after the missile was sacked.

The Yemeni government-held southern port of Aden reopened on Wednesday, but ports in Houthi-held areas are still closed.
