"We left it in his hands for the time being", Nebenzia told reporters.

On Tuesday, Riyadh's air defence systems intercepted a Houthi missile fired from Yemen at the Saudi city of Yanbu, north of Mecca and Jeddah. "I hope that it will be possible to avoid a battle for Hudeida", Guterres said.

Mr Griffiths held several rounds of talks last week in Sanaa without being able to convince the Houthis to hand control over of the Al Hodeidah port to UN-supervised worldwide forces.

"We urge you to use all available means to avert a catastrophic military assault on Yemen's major port city of Hodeida by the Saudi-led coalition, and to present Congress with immediate clarification regarding the full scope of USA military involvement in that conflict", reads the letter spearheaded by Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., which has been signed by seven members of Congress.

The UN and aid agencies have pleaded with the Saudi-led force against an attack on Hodeida, warning that it could lead to mass civilian casualties and starvation.

Eleven humanitarian aid agencies including Oxfam and Save the Children separately wrote to British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson urging him to warn the coalition that it will lose British support if it attacks Hodeida.

Riyadh and Abu Dhabi however maintain that the port is being used to smuggle weapons. "We have dozens of United Nations staff still in Hodeidah", Lowcock added.

Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including Hudeida, in 2014.

Saudi Arabia says three civilians in the kingdom's south have been killed by incoming fire from Yemen's Shia rebels.

Heavy fighting in Yemen between pro-government forces and Houthi rebels has killed more than 600 people on both sides in recent days, security officials said Monday. The United States is also providing support to the coalition, including air-to-air refuelling and intelligence sharing.

A military attack or siege on the Houthi-held western city, long a target in the war, could cost up to 250,000 lives, a senior United Nations humanitarian official has warned. The Red Sea port is a lifeline for millions of people, handling most of the country's commercial imports and humanitarian aid supplies.

Meanwhile, US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said the US "is closely following developments" and has "spoken with Emirati leaders and made clear our desire to address their security concerns while preserving the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports". It has damaged Yemen's infrastructure, crippled its health system and pushed the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation.
