The governor of Marib, Ali Taiman, explained that the press conference comes to clarify the facts about some issues for local and international public opinion, and to reveal the aggression's disavowal of their responsibilities in creating crises and the suffering experienced by the Yemeni people.
He confirmed that the Marib gas station was covering most of the Yemeni governorates, and with the start of the aggression, the Saudi-backed government cut electricity to the areas under the control of the Salvation Government.
"The engineering teams were directly targeted by the Saudi-backed government in Mas and Madghal area, which forced them to stop working, and after that, the Marib gas station stopped working as a result of neglect, lack of maintenance and corruption" He said.
He touched on the suffering of the people of Marib, the travelers and all the Yemeni people after the Saudi-backed government cut off the main asphalt roads linking between the city of Marib and Sana'a and the others governorates.
The Governor of Marib indicated that the Arada Authority, under the directives of the US-Saudi aggression, deducted a percentage of the shares of the free governorates of domestic gas by more than 50 percent, which caused great suffering for the citizens.
Toaiman called on Al-Arada, Al-Islah Party and the US-Saudi aggression to stop the policy of collective punishment against the Yemeni people and to supply gas to all governorates in sufficient quantities and at reasonable prices.
The governor of Marib confirmed that the initiative was welcomed by the sheikhs and dignitaries of Marib, but Al-Arada and the reform leaders rejected peace initiatives, because they do not have the decision of peace and war.
He pointed out that the Arada authority sought to turn the Marib governorate into a training camp to gather mercenaries and takfiri elements from various governorates.
The governor of Marib explained that the governorate's oil and gas wealth was subjected to looting, as oil revenues covered 70 percent of the state's general budget, and its revenues during the years of aggression were estimated at more than 14 billion dollars.
He called, in this regard, to supply the proceeds to the Central Bank of Yemen in Sana'a to be able to disburse salaries to all employees in the northern and southern governorates.
The governor of Marib renewed the local authority's welcome in the governorate for any serious initiatives that alleviate the suffering of citizens, calling on US-Saudi aggression to take advantage of the new truce in addressing humanitarian issues without fallacies.
During the four months of the UN-brokered truce and the extension that took place between April 2 and August 2, the pro-aggression government looted Yemeni crude oil and domestic gas revenues, the equivalent of the salaries of state employees for seven months.
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.
