coalition navy holding 20 food and oil ships

The Saudi-led coalition Naval forces are seizing 20 ships despite obtaining international permits, not allowing them to enter Hodeidah Port.

“The US-Saudi coalition continues to detain food and oil  derivatives ships, not allowing them to enter Hodeidah Port  in an attempt to exacerbate the economic crisis for the Yemeni people,” a source in al- Hodeidah Port said Saturday.

Pro– Houthis deputy Foreign Minister, Hussein Al-Azzi, said that “The continuous detention of ships in light of the spread of the Corona pandemic is an indication of the excessive brutality of the coalition and a reflection of the total absence of any seriousness in peace talks.”
