And while the United Nations continues its diplomatic efforts, they also appear to be preparing to fail, saying they believe an attack by UAE forces on Hodeidah is imminent.

Correspondence sent from European donor governments to aid groups in Yemen on Saturday warned that "a military assault now looks imminent", according to the text of the correspondence seen by Reuters. "Humanitarian organisations have rushed to develop a contingency plan".

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

More than 10,000 Yemenis have been killed since the war began, tens of thousands have been wounded, and another two million people have been displaced.

Around 70 per cent of Yemen's imports, including the vast majority of its food, comes through Hodeidah and the port is described as the country's "lifeline".

The UN considers Yemen to be the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million people in need of assistance. In fact the MSF has issued a clarification and apologized, he said. The charity does not have any current projects in Hodeidah, a spokesperson told The Defense Post. Seven civilians, including four children, were injured in the airstrike located less than 100 meters from the NRC facility.

A broader United Nations peace plan calls on the Houthis to give up their missiles in return for an end to a coalition bombing campaign and a transitional governance deal, according to a draft document and sources.

The rebels control much of northern Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa.

The Houthis seized Yemen's capital Sana'a in 2015 and has been locked in battle with troops loyal to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said there were "intense negotiations" by his UN envoy Martin Griffiths on the fate of the port.

During his meeting with Yemen's new Foreign Minister Khaled Alyemany, Guterres stressed that "everyone should redouble efforts to find a political solution and avoid a fierce, bloody battle for Hodeida", UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
