The missile was shot by Houthi militias targeting various Saudi areas, mainly border cities.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday called on all parties "to honour their commitments to work with the UN".

"Our message is clear. if this assault happens then it would be very hard to imagine how hard the situation the people in Yemen, particularly in Hodeidah, will be in", said Muhsin Siddiqui, country director of Oxfam.

The United States warned Monday that aid must flow through the Yemeni port of Hodeida amid reports that Emirati forces plan to seize it from Huthi rebels.

The United Nations relocated members of its worldwide staff from Hodeidah on Monday.

The U.N. Security Council, which was also briefed by Griffiths via video from Amman, strongly backed his efforts and Lowcock's and stressed again that "only negotiated settlement can bring the war to an end".

A US -backed, Saudi-led military coalition is fighting against the Houthis on behalf of the government of President Abd Rabbu Mansour al-Hadi, who lives in exile in Riyadh.

He added: "It will be necessary to sit down and discuss how to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future". The migrants were rescued in six separate nighttime operations in the central Mediterranean on Saturday.

"We will continue to discourage any attack on Hodeidah port and will continue to use our influence to do so", Alistair Burt, a foreign office minister, told the House of Commons.

The ongoing violence has devastated Yemen's infrastructure, including water and sanitation systems, prompting the United Nations to describe the situation as one of "the worst humanitarian disasters in modern times".

"We are hoping for the efforts of the special envoy to bring positive results on it, and we left it in his hands for the time being", Nebenzia said. Since the Coalition launched its support for the Yemeni government in March 2015, Houthis have fired 149 ballistic issiles and 66,315 projectiles toward Saudi Arabia.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced three million and unleashed the world's most urgent humanitarian crisis in the impoverished Arab state which is struggling with a starvation and cholera epidemic, according to the United Nations. The coalition aims to restore the government of self-exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

The conflict has left almost 10,000 people dead in Yemen, already the Arab world's poorest country.

Save the Children said on Sunday that it continued to treat "tens of thousands of children in Hodeidah for acute malnutrition, and diseases like diphtheria and malaria".
