YPC: Number of Fuel Ships Held by Saudi Coalition Rises to Nine
Sana’a-based Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) announced on Thursday that the number of fuel ships seized by the Saudi-led coalition has risen to nine, after the coalition seized four oil ships on Thursday.
The company’s spokesman, Issam Al-Mutawakel, stated in a tweet on Twitter that the coalition seized two ships loaded with diesel and two others loaded with petrol, bringing the number of seized ships to nine fuel ships.
The spokesman of YPC confirmed that all the detained ships were inspected and obtained entry permits from the United Nations.
“Since the last extension of the truce until now, no fuel vessel has been allowed to enter the port of Hodeida,” Al-Mutawakel said, indicating that there has been no positive action by the UN envoy regarding these violations.
He held the coalition forces and the United Nations and its envoy responsible for the results of these violations.
