YPC: Saudi Coalition Seizes New Oil Ship
The Yemeni Petroleum Company in Sana’a (YPC) confirmed on Friday that the Saudi-led Coalition detained a new fuel vessel loaded with diesel, despite it was cleared by the United Nations.
In a statement to SABA, YPC’s official spokesman Essam al-Mutawakel stated that the Saudi Coalition continued to detain fuel vessels.
The Coalition today seized the diesel vessel “Berklees”, which carried 30,597 tons, al-Mutawakel said, adding the number of the detained vessels increased to three, all of which have been cleared by United Nations passes.
The company’s spokesperson called on the international community and humanitarian and international organizations to pressure the Saudi-led Coalition to abide by the declared truce and stop detaining the fuel vessels.
