SANA’A -The Saudi-led aggression coalition against Yemen on Wednesday has at dawn held another vessel transporting oil derivatives and prevented it from entering the port of Hodeidah, bringing the total of oil ships held at sea to 12.
This comes at a time the Saudi coalition media are promoting news claiming the release of oil derivatives ships that have been held for 62 days.
“The aggression coalition has been holding 12 ships carrying 106,353 tons of gasoline and 180,773 tons of diesel for 62 days, preventing their access to the port of Hodeidah to cover civilians’ needs,” an official in the Yemeni Petroleum Company said in a press statement.
On Tuesday, officials at the company denied news claiming that the coalition had released oil derivatives ships it held two months ago, affirming that “the coalition continues to detain the vessels and prevent their access to the port of Hodeidah.”
