Fuel arrived in Hodeidah does not cover 5 %  of needs: YPC

Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) said that the fuel amount  entering via land port does not cover five percent of the needs in the areas under control of the Sana’a National Salvation Government.

YPC’s CEO Ammar al-Adhraei on Sunday said the amount of fuel is being entered through the land ports “does not cover five percent of the needs in the liberated areas.”

“There is no alternative to the port of Hodeidah,” al-Adhraei added, in an interview with pro-Houthis al-Masirah TV Channel.

Saudi-led coalition navies are still holding 400,000 tons of fuel aboard vessels, despite obtaining UN permits, al-Adhraei explained.

He referred that 52 days have passed since the last oil ship entered the port of Hodeidah, except for two ships that were entered to alleviate the pressure on the coalition.
