The forces of Saudi-led coalition continue to detain 22 ships with more than 536 tons of oil derivatives and prevent them from reaching the port of Hodeidah despite obtaining international permits, a source in Hodeidah port said Today.
According to Almasirah TV the ships carry more than 144 thousand tons of diesel, more than 263 thousand tons of gasoline, more than 29 thousand tons of gas and more than 100 thousand tons of diesel.
The period of detention of oil ships ranges between 98 days and 50 days, and the longest detention period is for the DYNASTY oil tanker, which was seized by the coalition’s navy on March 25, with 29,262 hydrocarbons on board. Its detention period has reached 98 days.
The Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) confirms that piracy of Saudi-led coalition against ships of oil derivatives in spite of obtaining international permits is a violation of the provisions of the International Convention on Human Rights, the rules of international humanitarian law, and all applicable laws and customs, as well as a permanent disregard of the provisions and objectives of the Stockholm Agreement, which affirmed in its entirety the necessity of facilitating the arrival of basic materials and humanitarian aid to the port of Hodeidah in a manner that meets the needs and aspirations of the Yemeni people.
