Air traffic in Sanaa's airport is now restricted to flights carrying humanitarian aid sent by the United Nations and other worldwide organizations.

"This will have no impact on our operations once they resume", McGoldrick said in an email from Amman, Jordan.

The fiery comments came even as Saudi Arabia said on Monday that it will begin reopening airports and seaports in Yemen - those in areas not controlled by the rebels - after days of closing them over a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh.

The announcement from the Saudi mission at the United Nations came after the coalition fighting Yemen's rebels, known as Houthis, faced widespread global criticism over the closure, with the U.N. and over 20 aid groups saying it could bring millions of already suffering people closer to "starvation and death".

Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a November 4 ballistic missile attack on Riyadh near its worldwide airport by the Shiite rebels known as Houthis.

Dujarric said the United Nations refugee agency expressed alarm at the worsening humanitarian situation, noting that at a center for displaced Yemenis in Sanaa "hundreds more people are approaching the facility daily, saying they are no longer able to meet basic needs or afford medical care". The Saudi closure had drawn global condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

It says those ports are in Aden, Mocha and Mukalla. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the media.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in Yemen in March 2015 to push back the Houthi rebels who control the capital Sanaa, and restore the government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to power.
