The three-month, UN-backed negotiations in Kuwait crumbled over the weekend. Saudi-led air strikes on the capital Sanaa began on Sunday and continued on Tuesday.
The coalition also turned away flights into the Sanaa International Airport for 72 hours from Monday night, according to sources at the airport and an aid agency.
The United Nations has called the scale of suffering in the war-torn country “staggering”. Since the escalation of the conflict nearly two years ago, more than 6,500 civilians have been killed and 32,000 injured, according to the Norwegian Refugee Council.
During that time three million have fled their homes. Eighty percent of the country, or 21 million people, are now in need of humanitarian aid.
