On Monday, thousands of Yemenis took to the streets to protest the blockade.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen announced a suspension of border crossing via air, marine and land routes following a ballistic missile fired from Yemen targeting Saudi capital Riyadh on November 6.

A week after hearing dire warnings of mass starvation in Yemen, the UN Security Council appeared powerless on Wednesday to push the Saudi-led coalition to lift its blockade of humanitarian aid.

According to Politico, the resolution "publicly acknowledges the Pentagon has been sharing targeting information and refueling warplanes that Saudi Arabia and other allies are using to attack Houthi rebels".

"Even before this latest blockade, based on this calculation Yemen would expect to see about 50,000 malnourished children under the age of five die from hunger or disease this year", the group said Wednesday, adding that this amounts to roughly one child dying in Yemen every 10 minutes.

On Thursday, the leaders of the World Health Organization, the United Nations children's agency and the World Food Program issued a joint appeal for the easing of the blockade.

"The space and access we need to deliver humanitarian assistance is being choked off, threatening the lives of millions of vulnerable children and families".

The coalition said it closed the ports and borders to stop the flow of arms from Iran to the Houthis. The war is being waged between the internationally recognized government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi movement backed by army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The U.N. says Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has written to Saudi Arabia's U.N. ambassador saying the kingdom's failure to reopen key Yemen airports and sea ports is reversing humanitarian efforts to tackle the crisis in the impoverished country.

Dujarric says the United Nations urges the coalition to resume U.N. humanitarian flights to Aden and the capital, Sanaa, and to reopen the ports of Hodeida and Salif for food and medical deliveries.
