The Security Council met behind closed doors at Britain's request after London told aid agencies on the ground that it had received a warning from the United Arab Emirates of an imminent attack. Once envisioned as an Emirati-led amphibious assault needing advanced United States boats to navigate Red Sea minefields laid by Iran, the 45,000-strong force of Yemeni troops has instead moved along the coast in a two-month offensive to reach Hodeidah with refueling support from new helicopter bases.

The United Nations pulled all of its global staff out of Al Hodeidah early on Monday morning. Aid agencies have warned that an attack would have catastrophic consequences.
The three-year stalemated war has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced more than 3 million.
Previous U.N. efforts have failed to end the more than three-year-old conflict which pits the Houthis, who seized the capital Sanaa in 2014, against other Yemeni forces backed by a coalition loyal to exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and led by USA allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The conflict has left almost 10,000 people dead in Yemen, already the Arab world's poorest country.
