The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to brief media.

Guterres said U.N. Yemen envoy Martin Griffiths was shuttling between Sanaa and also the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

The letter comes after the United Nations and humanitarian groups reported over the weekend they were warned by the United Arab Emirates to evacuate Hodeida by Tuesday.

The lawmakers also want more transparency about the USA role in Yemen, The Hill reported.

The officials said Israeli war planes carrying cargoes of modern weapons and Israeli fighter jets have landed at Saudi Khamis Mushayt military base over the past few days to take part in the assault.

"It's also our plan and intention to stay and deliver", Lowcock said.

Workers inspect damage at the site of an air strike on the maintenance hub at the Hodeida port, Yemen May 27, 2018. "We are working with very largely numbers of Yemeni organizations and individuals".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday expressed concern at the situation in Hudeida and called on all parties to "honour their commitments to working with the United Nations".

"I have 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", he said.

The UN pulled all of its global staff out of Al Hodeidah early on Monday morning. Some 600,000 people live in and around the city.

"We will continue to discourage any attack on Hodeidah port and will continue to use our influence to do so", Alistair Burt, a foreign office minister, told the House of Commons.

Following the closed-door council 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.

We urge you to contact your senators and representatives and tell them the time is now to introduce legislation curtailing assistance to the Saudi- and United Arab Emirates-led coalition's military campaign in Yemen, the one message that may successfully deter the UAE and Saudi Arabia from leading a catastrophic attack on Hudaydah city and port.

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.

As the last port controlled by the northern rebels, it is the lone source of humanitarian aid for millions across northern Yemen. It has damaged Yemen's infrastructure, crippled its health system and pushed the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation. The United Nations says that Yemen is now the world's worst humanitarian crisis and that 22.2 million Yemenis are in need of humanitarian aid. Malnutrition, cholera and other diseases have killed or sickened thousands of civilians over the years.
