RIAYDH, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen's Houthi militias decided to temporarily close all Yemeni ground, air, and sea ports, Saudi Press Agency reported on Monday.
The coalition highlighted in a statement the continuation of the entry and exit of humanitarian supplies and crews in accordance with its updated procedures.
The step was taken after the Saudi air force intercepted a missile launched from Yemen towards Riyadh on Saturday, which is one of many similar attacked that mainly targeted border cities since the beginning of the war in 2015.
The coalition also calls upon all relevant parties to adhere to the inspections, entry, and exit procedures to and from Yemeni ports of entry designated by the coalition that will be announced later. All necessary legal steps will be taken against violators of these procedures.
