Saudis, UAE draw praise for pledging aid to Yemen

UN chief urges Yemen peace talks

The 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen requires $2.96 billion to reach more than 13 million people across the country.

The Emiratis contracted Wikistrat, an Israeli company founded in 2010, in the lead up to the Saudi-led coalition intervention after Houthi rebels overran the capital and other major cities across the country, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Workers said the warehouses also contained hundreds of thousands of mattresses meant for those displaced by the war, which has killed more than 10,000 people and crippled the economy.

Saudi Arabia and its allies have repeatedly been accused of hitting civilians targets, including hospitals and markets, in their three-year campaign against the Houthis.

So this is a real thing: Teens are snorting condoms
Condoms that aren't designed for oral sex can have lubricants on the outside that aren't meant to be ingested in large doses. The practice could be risky to your sinuses and potentially life-threatening if the condom gets stuck in your throat.

Noting that all ports must remain open to humanitarian and commercial cargo, the medicines, food and the fuel, Guterres said: "Humanitarians must be able to reach the people who need help the most, without conditions".

Guterres was speaking on the sidelines of a United Nations pledging conference a day after an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition that supports Hadi's government killed 12 civilians in the coastal city of Hodeidah.

Mr Guterres' appeal comes hours after Houthi rebels in Yemen launched a missile towards a heavily populated Saudi Arabian city, which failed to cross the border, according to the Arab Coalition forces.

"As important as the financial contributions to the conference is the commitment of parties to the conflict to come together to put an end to the war", Guterres said.

Keep 2nd Amendment, rein in dark money
Since then, says Stevens, who wrote the dissenting opinion in that case, the NRA has developed into a powerful propaganda tool. "So, we're going to protect our Second Amendment ", the president went on.

The Saudi-led coalition shut down the country's land, sea and air borders a year ago in response to a missile attack by the Houthis that was intercepted near Riyadh. The UN said that blockade raised the danger of mass starvation, and it was then partially lifted.

The coalition said a naval ship belonging to a member country rapidly intervened, without giving further details.

Hodeidah port, on the Red Sea, handles the bulk of Yemen's imports, including critically-needed food and aid supplies. We need unrestricted access everywhere inside Yemen and we need all the parties to the conflict to respect global humanitarian law, and to protect civilians.

Syria's Idlib at heart of Russia-Turkey faceoff
Erdogan, however, insists Turkey won't hesitate to attack the city, even if it means a military confrontation with the US.
