  • Saudi soldiers reveal the remains of missiles during a press conference at the Armed Forces club in Riyadh

Yemen's internationally-recognised government said last week the drones used to attack Saudi Arabia were "made in Iran".

The United Nations' new envoy for Yemen has said he plans to unveil a new plan to end the conflict in the Arab world's poorest country within two months.

He warned, however, there were unconfirmed reports that movements of forces in Yemen are on the increase and the prospect of intense military operations around the Houthi-held port city of Hodeidah "may soon be forthcoming".

"My plan is to put to the council within the next two months a framework for negotiations", Griffiths said on Tuesday at his first meeting at the Security Council since he assumed the position in March.

"Our concern is that any of these developments may, in a stroke, take peace off the table". Saudi authorities say over the past three years 90 ballistic missiles have been fired at the kingdom by the rebels.

Al-Maliki repeated previous statements accusing Iran of providing missile components to the Houthis.

An Arab coalition battling the Houthi rebels in Yemen warned of a "painful" response if the militants launched new attacks on Saudi Arabia using Iran-supplied drones.

Turki al-Malki, spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Huthi forces, displays what he said is wreckage from Iranian-Houthi suicide drones, during a press conference in Khobar city, Saudi Arabia, Monday, April 16, 2018.

While backing the new peace efforts, the Security Council can not be "afraid to call out the Huthis and their Iranian patrons by name in future resolutions", said Haley.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than 2 million and driven the country to the verge of starvation.

Iran has repeatedly denied arming the Houthis in Yemen, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia that the evidence of an arms connection is irrefutable.

An overwhelming 75 percent of the population - 22 million people - is in need of aid, seven million of whom are at risk of starvation, while one million Yemenis have been ill from cholera. A high-ranking United Nations aid official recently warned against the "catastrophic" living conditions in Yemen, stating that there was a growing risk of starvation and cholera there.
