An air raid by the Saudi-led military coalition put the Yemeni airport in the Houthi-controlled capital San'a out of service on Tuesday, jeopardizing relief shipments to a country on the brink of starvation, the state news agency SABA reported. The move came after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired towards Riyadh, which it blamed on Tehran.
On Tuesday, Yemen's airline said a commercial plane landed at Aden global airport after acquiring permits from the Saudi-led coalition. While the language of the resolution calls to "increase efforts to adopt all necessary and appropriate measures to prevent civilian casualties and increase humanitarian access", it does not call for an end to US support of the Saudi-led coaltion attacking Yemen. However, Saudi Arabia demanded more rigorous checks at the Red Sea port of Hodeida, which is being controlled by the rebels.
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.
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.
"All members in the council were taken aback by the report by Mr Lowcock", Swedish Ambassador Olof Skoog told reporters on Wednesday.

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.
McGoldrick was speaking to reporters in Geneva by phone from Amman, because he said flights into Sanaa were blocked.
United Nations aid chief Mark Lowcock warned at that meeting that unless the blockade was lifted, Yemen will face "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims".
