This amount was enough to alleviate the suffering of the people, which has been going on for nearly six years, since the US-Saudi aggression transfered central bank jobs to Aden and cut salaries.
The total revenues of crude oil and domestic gas looted by the Saudi-mercenaries in the past four months is about 919.66 million dollars, equivalent to about 551.8 billion Yemeni riyals. It would have covered the salaries of all state administrative employees for more than seven months, at 77 billion Yemeni riyals for each month.
The looted crude oil is about 8.3 million barrels, with a total value of up to 801 million dollars, equivalent to 480.6 billion Yemeni riyals. The domestic gas sold by the Saudi-backed government is about 232.5 thousand tons, which is equal to 20 million cylinders, with a total of 71.2 billion Yemeni riyals.
Yemeni crude oil was subjected to a series of continuous looting by Saudi-mercenaries. On April 10, the foreign ship Politaris arrived at the Dabba port in Hadramout to loot 2.3 million barrels. Its total value is approximately $267 million. While the Indian ship SEAVELVET arrived on the 25th of the same month at Al-Nashima port in Shabwa governorate to loot one million barrels, with a total value of 106 million dollars. On May 31, the foreign ship Apolitaris arrived at the port of Ash-Shihr in Hadramout to loot more than 2.2 million barrels, with a total of more than $270 million.
June and July, were also witnesses to the series of Saudi-mercenaries looting, and behind them, the US-Saudi aggression, for Yemeni crude oil.
On the 26th of last June, the ship Golf Aetos arrived at the Radhum port in Shabwa governorate to loot 400,000 barrels, with a total value of $44 million. It was followed by three days later, on the 29th of the same month, the arrival of the Emirati ship lSABAELL to the port of Al-Nashima in Shabwa to loot nearly one million barrels, worth 114 million dollars.
During April 2 - August 2, 2022, the Saudi-backed government sold 9,300 trailers distributed in 20 million cylinders. With a total of 232.5 thousand tons, with a total value of 71.2 billion Yemeni riyals. A monthly rate of 2325 trailers, in which five million cylinders are distributed from the company per month, with a total value of 17.8 billion riyals. The price per cylinder is 3576 riyals.
A UN-brokered truce in Yemen first came into effect on 2 April, and for an initial two months. It was renewed for another two months in June.
The deal stipulated halting offensive military operations, including cross-border attacks, and allowing fuel-laden ships to enter Yemen's lifeline Hodeidah port and commercial flights in and out of the airport in the capital Sana'a "to predetermined destinations in the region."
However, in light of UN silence, the Saudi-led aggression was still obstructing flights to the Sana'a International Airport in Yemen’s capital and detaining fuel ships that were headed to the country. The fires of the aggression side did not subside along the fronts, on the borders and inside, including shelling, reconnaissance, development and crawl.
When the period specified for the military and humanitarian truce was nearing its end, the US-Saudi aggression seemed to be in a hurry to adopt the option of extending it for the third time to freeze the battle in Yemen and its economic repercussions away from global energy markets.
The forces of aggression are pushing for an extension, not out of concern for peace, but rather out of fear that the escalation will add more complications to the international scene in addition to the crisis imposed by the Russian-Ukrainian war.
A truce, the positive effects of which have not been felt by the citizens over the past months, despite its broad headlines. Commercial flights to Cairo are still stumbling until today, and the navy of aggression continues to pursue fuel ships without respect for agreements or any regard for international laws and norms.
Double standards regarding the violations of the forces of aggression and its provocative practices is a double UN policy that has brought the crisis in Yemen to its current level of misery and deprivation that has affected everyone far from justice and the realization of the rights of the Yemeni people.
The Supreme Political Council requires, in order to extend the truce, the commitment of the Saudi-led aggression to pay the salaries of all employees and the rest of the services, as a natural entitlement that is not subject to extortion. Before that, the complete blockade of Sana’a airport and the port of Hodeidah must be lifted as a criterion for demonstrating the seriousness and goodwill in the faltering peace process in Yemen.
The truce has been renewed for an additional two months through 2 October, UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced on Tuesday.
The extension includes a commitment by the Saudi-led aggression and the Salvation Government to intensify negotiations to reach an expanded agreement as soon as possible.
