Today, the US government announced almost $87 million in additional humanitarian assistance for the people of Yemen at the Yemen High-Level Pledging Conference held in Geneva, Switzerland.

The kingdom and its coalition partner, the United Arab Emirates, were also the largest donors at Tuesday's conference, jointly pledging $1 billion in humanitarian relief, according to figures provided by the UN.

"Independent of the fact that there is a war, there are humanitarian obligations that are assumed by countries", he said.

With the situation worsening - Guterres called it "catastrophic" - the conference easily surpassed the funding pledges of $1.1 billion at a similar event previous year. The target for the 2018 Yemen humanitarian appeal was set at $2.96 billion (2.4 billion euros).

Guterres said he saw "positive perspectives" for preparing a plan of action "to lead to an effective inter-Yemeni dialogue able to achieve a political solution, with of course the involvement of all those that are relevant in this conflict". Some 8.4 million people do not know how they will get their next meal, according to United Nations estimates. The conflict has fanned the world's worst recent cholera outbreak and put many on the brink of starvation. Only half of the country's health facilities function and 16 million people lack access to clean water and sanitation facilities, which increases the risk of disease spreading.

Yemen's internationally-recognised government fled Sanaa in 2014, following a Houthi-led takeover of the capital. "I am pleased that Denmark is contributing with DKK 70 million so we can continue to help to the vulnerable civilian population in Yemen", says Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tørnæs.

Israel's statement announcing the new plan on Monday said there was no longer a need to send migrants to unnamed third countries. By late Monday evening, Netanyahu wrote on Facebook that he was suspending implementation of the agreement for the time being.

The Houthis said the missile was retaliation for the bombing. Saudi-led airstrikes have killed thousands of civilians and destroyed hospitals, schools and markets.
