Saudi Arabia launched military strikes against Yemen's defense ministry in the capital city of Sana'a in the latest escalation in the conflict between the two Arab nations, witnesses told the French news agency AFP.

The alliance said on Monday it had closed all air, land and sea ports in Yemen to stem the alleged flow of arms to the Houthis from Iran after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired towards Riyadh, which it blamed on Tehran.

This week, UN aid chief Mark Lowcock warned the Security Council (UNSC) that Yemen would face "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims", unless the blockade was lifted. Medical experts also warn that the blockade will worsen the country's cholera outbreak, which has affected nearly 1 million people.
