Arab aoalition's airstrike on hospital in Yemen's Hodeidah kills 42

Air strikes on hospital and market in Yemen's Hodeidah kill dozens

It also reviewed the statement issued by Arab Coalition regarding the involvement of the Houthi militia in a deadly attack on civilians on Thursday on a hospital and fish market in Hodeidah.

The last attempt to resolve the conflict through talks took place in Kuwait in 2016, but the negotiations collapsed after the Houthi militia rejected a United Nations peace plan.

The Saudi-led coalition's spokesperson Turki al-Maliki said in a press conference on Friday that the ship that got stuck on reef at Hodeidah port is an indicator that Houthi militias have failed in running the port. "While the exact circumstances around the ground explosions are still unknown, this lack of respect for civilian life and civilian property is reprehensible", said Johannes Bruwer, the head of the ICRC delegation in Yemen.

The talks will aim to solve a conflict that has caused over 10,000 deaths since a Saudi and UAE-backed coalition launched a military campaign on behalf of Hadi's government in 2015.

The spokesman presented evidence including pictures he said showed the Houthi mortars used in the attack and maps of Hodeidah showing coalition targets in relation to the location of the hospital.

The war has left almost 10,000 people dead and unleashed what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

The campaign to take the city threatens to worsen Yemen's humanitarian situation as it is the main entry point for food, humanitarian aid and fuel supplies to the country.

Last July, Sekulow had said the president "didn't sign off on anything" in regards to the Trump Tower meeting. He also said the meeting was "totally legal" and he did not know about it.

"You have heard the statistics many times: more than 22 million people - 75 per cent of the population - require humanitarian assistance and protection".

"The airstrikes were carried out on ambulance cars at the entrance to the Al Thawra hospital".

The attack followed accusations by Saudi Arabia that Houthi rebels had attacked a Saudi oil vessel in a shipping lane in the Red Sea last week. The operation continues despite the United Nations warnings of a possible humanitarian catastrophe.

"Every day this week we have seen new cholera cases in Hodeidah, and now this".

Yemen may be on the brink of a new cholera epidemic, with a heightened death rate due to widespread malnutrition, the World Health Organisation has said.

He called on Council members to "urge the parties to resolve this conflict through negotiation rather than through military means", explaining that he will invite the warring parties to Geneva on 6 September for a round of talks.

Yemen's government maintains the rebels' "unconditional withdrawal" from Hodeida is key to restarting the talks.
