The Arab Coalition in Yemen announced on Friday that 42 permits were issued for ships and relief aircrafts, Al-Arabiya reported on Saturday.

The Arab Coalition renewed its call for the UN to take over the port of Hodeidah, which is under the control of the Houthi terrorists.

The spokesperson of the coalition, Turki al-Maliki said on Friday, that the missile launched towards the city of Riyadh entered through the port of Hodeidah.

The White House welcomed in a statement to the coalition the initiative led by Saudi Arabia to reopen the port of Hodeidah and Sanaa International Airport to allow humanitarian aid to enter Yemen.

The statement described the decision to open the port of Hodeidah and Sanaa airport as a first step in addressing the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, expressing Washington's aspiration to take additional steps.

On Friday, the UN said the Saudi-led Arab alliance had agreed to resume flights to the Yemeni capital Sanaa starting Saturday.
