The UN aid agencies said the coalition's move to ease the siege was not enough, and warned of mass starvation and health catastrophes in Yemen's north. "There are many sources of supply to Yemen, even during the past week or so".

The Saudi-led coalition has said it will keep Hodeidah port closed until a United Nations verification programme is reviewed to ensure no weapons reach the Houthis.

Al-Mouallimi also accused the Houthis of diverting humanitarian aid "to fulfill their own requirements" and "to trade in the black market and achieve exorbitant profits at the expense of the Yemeni people".

Saudi's official media blamed its regional foe Iran for supporting the Yemeni rebels with long-range ballistic missiles.

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.

The agency reported that the closure of Yemen's border has halted the delivery of emergency assistance for almost 280,000 internally displaced people, and stranded some of its staff outside the country while others lack fuel for transport, he said.

The Saudi-led coalition hopes that will prevent "the smuggling of weapons, ammunitions, missile parts and cash that are regularly being supplied by Iran and Iranian accomplices to the Houthi rebels", the statement said.

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 USA support of the Saudi-led coaltion attacking Yemen.

The Saudi U.N. ambassador denied that there has been an embargo, saying "a temporary procedure" was taken for a few days to ensure the safety and security of Yemenis and Saudis, and that supplies were available.

The Islamic State group meanwhile struck a fresh blow to Saudi-allied forces in the country's south, where a suicide auto bombing early on Tuesday targeted security forces in the port city of Aden, killing at least six people and wounding scores.
