  • Air Strike Near Yemeni Port Monday Kills 16 People

It includes $930 million from Saudi Arabia and the UAE which lead the coalition air strikes.

The United States pledged on Tuesday an additional $87 million in humanitarian aid toward Yemen, which is facing the world's worst cholera outbreak and largest food-security emergency amid a three-year war, according to the United States Agency for International Development.

More than 22 million people in Yemen are in need of aid.

The conference came just a day after an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition on the port city of Hodeidah killed a number of children, in what the United Nations children's fund, Unicef, called "one of the deadliest attacks" on minors in the country for years.

"This is one of the deadliest attacks on children since the conflict in Yemen escalated in March 2015", UNICEF said in a statement.

"Independent of the fact that there is a war, there are humanitarian obligations that are assumed by countries", he said.

Stepped up attacks: Yemen's Houthi rebels have scaled up attacks outside of its borders, recently launching a series of ballistic missiles towards airports and urban centers in Saudi Arabia.

"The Houthis should immediately stop their indiscriminate missile attacks on populated areas of Saudi Arabia", said HRW's Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson. "But with global support, we can and must prevent this country from becoming a long-term tragedy", he said.

Guterres underscored that the only way to ensure that Yemen donor conferences do not continue year after year is for the sides to negotiate a peace deal. He also stressed the Kingdom's efforts to find a political solution to the Yemeni crisis and provide humanitarian relief and support to its people. "An enduring solution will only come through a comprehensive political agreement". "I urge all parties to engage with my new Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths, without delay", Guterres said.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than two million and driven the country - already the poorest on the Arabian Peninsula - to the verge of starvation.

Saudi Arabia and its allies shut down the country's land, sea and air borders previous year in response to a missile attack by the Huthis that was intercepted near Riyadh.

While the coalition has eased the blockade, restrictions on deliveries persist. "In addition, commercial imports, which account for most of Yemen's food, fuel, and medicine, must have the same freedom of movement".
