"This halted the only flights at Sanaa airport - those of the United Nations and other global organisations delivering humanitarian assistance", the rebel-run General Authority for Civil Aviation said.

The Saudi U.N. ambassador denied that there has been an embargo, saying "a temporary procedure" was taken for a few days to ensure the safety and security of Yemenis and Saudis, and that supplies were available.

The kingdom intercepted the missile and no one was injured, but within hours it imposed a fresh blockade, claiming it aimed at preventing weapons being smuggled into Yemen by its regional rival, Iran.

The House resolution explicitly states that the war authorizations passed after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and that passed before the 2003 invasion of Iraq do not extend to the Yemeni civil war. The coalition closed all air, land and sea ports in Yemen last week in response to a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh.

Houthi rebels in Yemen have launched fresh accusations on the Saudi-led military coalition over the bombing of Sanaa Airport which is Yemen's main worldwide airport.

Flights between Egyptian capital Cairo and Yemen's port city of Aden resumed after an 8-day hiatus, according to an official of Yemen's national flag carrier on Tuesday.

The UN says the closure of Hodeida port puts millions of civilians in the north at risk. On Tuesday, the United Nations called on Saudi Arabia to fully open the ports of Yemen to deliver humanitarian aid to the country. Jamie McGoldrick is United Nations humanitarian coordinator in the country.

"Millions of Yemenis depend on this airport for aid and we have hundreds of staff use it to move in and out of the country", he said. "If there is any breach in our supply pipeline, it will greatly impact millions", Khoury added. "There are many sources of supply to Yemen, even during the past week or so".

Abdallah Al-Mouallimi said the reopening of the ports was for the "safe transfer of humanitarian actors and humanitarian and commercial shipments" into Yemen. But the United Nations said most of the airport remained intact and that it would be able to receive aid shipments once they restart.
