In another development, Martin Griffiths, Yemen's envoy to the United Nations, said the world body was going to invite warring sides for talks on September 6 in Geneva.

During the rally, the protesters carried photos and placards in condemnation of the recent crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition and its mercenaries.

Yemen's war has killed almost 10,000 people, with more than eight million Yemenis at risk of starvation.

The Houthis have offered to hand over management of the port to the world body, according to the United Nations, but the coalition says the group must quit the western coast.

The latest massacre of Yemeni civilians comes amid the Saudi-led coalition's effort to seize Hodeidah from Yemen's Houthi rebels.

Yemeni medical officials said the Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen's Shia rebels conducted airstrikes in the rebel-held port city of Hodeida on Thursday, leaving at least 28 dead and 70 wounded, although the coalition has denied carrying out any attacks there.

UN-brokered political talks on Yemen broke down in 2016 amid demands for a rebel withdrawal from key cities and power-sharing with the Saudi-backed 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. A few months ago, locals said, an airstrike hit a nearby gas station, as part of an alleged campaign to limit the fuel supply to the capital.

Griffiths called on the parties "to create a conducive environment to allow for this to happen".

"[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. "There simply is no alternative when it comes to getting aid and imports of food and fuel into the country".

"The unilateral suspension of our naval operations is for a limited period", the rebels said in a statement released by their defence ministry.

Reporting to the UN Security Council after the attack, UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths said: "Recently, and despite all our efforts, the pace of war has increased".
