Arab coalition warns of 'painful' response over Yemen's Houthi drones

"To achieve enduring peace in Yemen, Iran must stop its interference and its violations of the arms embargo this Council imposed", Haley told the council.

"If the Houthis continue targeting industrial or residential facilities, the response will be hard and painful", said the Saudi-led coalition's spokesman, Col Turki Al Malki.

Last week, Saudi Arabia said it shot down a ballistic missile in Riyadh and two unmanned drones in the southern Asir and Jizan provinces.

"My plan is to put to the council within the next two months a framework for negotiations", Griffiths said in his first council report since taking over as special envoy in February.

The Houthis have fired dozens of missiles into Saudi Arabia since past year, all of which were intercepted.

Reporting on the progress of the war in Yemen, Al-Maliki said the coalition has destroyed 737 Houthi positions.

All BJP ministers resign from Mehbooba's Government for cabinet 'reshuffle'
The BJP leaders said the party wants to introduce new faces and work for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Ganga and Singh submitted their resignations to state unit chief Sat Sharma after major hue and cry.

The United Nations' Yemen mediator Martin Griffiths said on Tuesday he plans to present a plan for negotiations within two months to end the conflict, but warned that any new military offensives could "take peace off the table".

Saudi Arabia in March 2015 launched a coalition of Arab states fighting to roll back the Huthis in Yemen and restore the country's internationally recognised government to power.

Since then, more than 10,000 people have been killed and at least 40,000 wounded, mostly from Saudi-led air raids.

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

The missile was sacked in the direction of the southern Saudi city of Najran and was aimed at civilians, Maliki said, repeating accusations that Iran has been supplying the Houthis with the missiles.
