The state-run Saudi Press Agency quoted military coalition spokesman Col.

As the US-backed coalition in Yemen appears ready to assault the rebel-held port city of Hodeidah, the entry point for most of the country's aid, Congress is calling on the Pentagon to "use all available means" to stop the operation.

Urgent British-led efforts at the UN were under way to dissuade the United Arab Emirates and the Saudis from pressing ahead with the attack - or at least to give undertakings that it will not seek to starve Hodeidah into submission.

Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a "projectile" at the southwestern Saudi province of Jizan, killing three civilians on Saturday, the Saudi-led coalition opposed to the Houthis said.

The council met behind closed doors to hear United Nations envoy Martin Griffiths report on his diplomatic efforts to keep the rebel-held port of Hodeida open to shipments of aid and commercial goods.

By late today, key lawmakers had begun losing faith in United States efforts to convince Saudi and UAE military officials to stop the assault, after The Wall Street Journal reported that the UN's shuttle diplomacy failed to move UAE officials and that the Donald Trump administration had given the operation "a blinking yellow light".

United Nations aid chief Mark Lowcock said an attack on Hodeida would be "catastrophic" and that aid agencies were hoping to "stay and deliver" in Yemen, which the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

"We are, at the present moment in intense consultation ..."

Historic summit: Countdown on for Trump and Kim meeting
According to the Chicago Sun-Times , he told reporters that he wasn't sure if he would even meet Kim in Singapore . North Korean Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump are preparing for a June 12th nuclear summit in Singapore .


United Nations humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock told reporters today that 70 percent of Yemen's imported food, fuel, and medicines come through Hodeidah.

The United Nations mobilized Monday to avert a "fierce, bloody battle" for a key port in Yemen that provides a lifeline for food, medicine and other vital supplies.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres met with Yemen's foreign minister at UN headquarters amid warnings that an attack on Al Hodeidah was imminent.

"If an attack does take place, casualties on all sides will be high, with a likely catastrophic impact on the civilian population", they wrote in a letter to the foreign secretary.

The three-year conflict has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced more than 3 million.

The Houthis, an Iran-allied group that controls much of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa, have fired a series of missiles into the kingdom in recent months, part of a three-year-old conflict in Yemen widely seen as a proxy battle between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

The conflict has left almost 10,000 people dead in Yemen, already the Arab world's poorest country.
