The Saudi-led coalition backing Yemen's internationally recognized government has been battling the Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, since March.
According to UN figures, the war in Yemen has killed at least 5,884 people since March, when fighting escalated after the Saudi-led coalition began launching airstrikes targeting the rebels.
More than three million people, of whom, almost 400,000 were internally displaced, are in dire need of humanitarian aid in Yemen's central Taiz governorate.
