Following the closed-door meeting, Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia, who is council president this month, called for de-escalation and said the top United Nations body would be "closely" following developments.

Residents on the west coast launched a campaign to remove Houthi slogans, he also said, hinting that the Hodeidah Port has become a spot to smuggle weapons to the Houthis.

The U.N. considers Yemen to be the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million people in need of assistance.

The council met behind closed doors to hear United Nations envoy Martin Griffiths report on his diplomatic efforts to keep the rebel-held port of Hodeidah open to shipments of aid and commercial goods.

Hodeidah is a vital lifeline for the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the Houthi-controlled northern provinces, including the country's capital Sanaa.

"While the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies are reconfiguring their presence it's also our planned intention though to stay and deliver".

It's kind of amusing that a game that revolves around a world that's connecting to a network is letting you disconnect from one. While the viewpoint is in the first person for shooting and moving around, driving can be done in first or third person.

Yemen relies on imports for 90 percent of its food and 70 percent of those transit through Hodeidah, Lowcock said.

Heavy fighting in Yemen between pro-government forces and Shia rebels has killed more than 600 people on both sides in recent days, security officials said Monday.

Urgent British-led efforts at the UN were under way to dissuade the United Arab Emirates and the Saudis from pressing ahead with the attack - or at least to give undertakings that it will not seek to starve Hodeidah into submission. The United States is also providing support to the coalition, including air-to-air refuelling and intelligence sharing.

Griffiths told the council in April that he was working on a peace plan for Yemen but that any military action risked derailing that effort.

The coalition has been battling the Iran-allied rebels since March 2015, in a war that has killed more than 10,000 people.

Yemeni government forces have advanced to within nine kilometers (six miles) of Hodeida, the Saudi-led military coalition said last week. It has damaged Yemen's infrastructure, crippled its health system and pushed the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation.
