However, a coalition spokesman said the Houthi militia was behind the deaths of civilians in Hudaida, according to Al Arabiya TV.

Yemeni government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition have been conducting an offensive to capture Hodeida from Iran-backed Huthi rebels, but announced last month they were pausing the assault to give United Nations mediation efforts a chance.

Rebel-run media outlets have accused the coalition of carrying out Thursday's attacks in Hodeida.

At least 26 people were killed and dozens were wounded in air strikes blamed on the Saudi-led coalition near a hospital and popular fish market in the Yemeni city of Hudaida, Yemeni medical sources and aid agencies said on Thursday. A day earlier, on Tuesday, the coalition hit a target 2.5km away from the hospital.

On June 13, the coalition began a major offensive to retake Hodeidah city from the rebels.

He said the coalition had aways applied the highest worldwide and humanitarian standards in its targeting operations in Yemen. "Hospitals are protected under worldwide humanitarian law. Nothing can justify this loss of life", she said, adding that hundreds of thousands of people depended on the hospital to survive.

The strikes come as the United Nations tries to secure a ceasefire agreement between the warring sides.

A government official told AFP the internationally recognised government would attend the meeting although it was "not optimistic" over the outcome, while there has yet been no response from the rebels.

"[It has been] two years since the last round in Kuwait so my principal message and request to this council today is that we urge the parties to resolve this conflict through negotiation rather than through military means", Griffiths said.

He cautioned however that the situation for millions of Yemeni civilians could worsen if a solution to the conflict is not reached within a reasonable timeframe.

"The collation shall continue its work to free Yemen and return the Yemeni land to the legitimate government".

"We're calling on all parties to the conflict. for three full days of tranquility and to lay down arms to allow us to vaccinate the civilian population for cholera", World Health Organization emergency response chief Peter Salama said.

More than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, have been killed in the war, and about 3 million have been displaced. "Everything we are trying to do to stem the world's worst cholera epidemic is at risk".
