YPC official spokesman, Essam Al-Mutawakel, revealed in a statement this evening that the ship “Sea Hart” loaded with 27,893 tons of gasoline arrived at the port of Hodeida, as the first gasoline ship to reach the port since the beginning of this year, after six months of its detention by the coalition.
