US-Saudi Aggression Prevents Fuel Ship from Entering Hodeidah Port

News - Yemen: Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) announced that the US-Saudi aggression had detained new fuel ships "Red Ruby" and prevented them from reaching the port of Hodeidah, despite obtaining a UN entry permit.

On Thursday, "The coalition of aggression seized again the fuel ships Fos Energy and Princess Halimah, despite its inspection in Djibouti, which raises the number of fuel tankers hijacked by the coalition to three ships” the company's spokesman Issam Al-Mutawakel said in a statement. "This is with the aim of increasing the suffering of the Yemeni people and deepening their siege."

Al-Mutawakil pointed out that the piracy operation on the ship came after the aggression seized four fuel ships, and they were not released until after the detention periods reached 17 days for some ships.

The coalition of aggression is trying to tighten the siege on the Yemeni people and adopt a policy of reducing in the introduction of oil with the aim of increasing the economic and humanitarian crisis in the country.

Last month, the Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) said in a statement that, "The total fines for delaying fuel ships seized by the US-Saudi aggression amounted to 11 million dollars during the truce period". The company reiterated that the US-Saudi aggression continued to piracy on all fuel ships, without exception, and to seize them since the announcement of the temporary truce.

The company explained that the fuel ships are still being held by the US-Saudi aggression for varying periods, a total of 314 days since the announcement of the truce agreement, in addition to the delay in Djibouti for a total period of more than 152 days.

It stressed that during the truce period (April-September), only 33 fuel ships out of 54 ships reached Hodeidah ports, of which only four were released on August 2, at the end of the first extension period of the truce.

The statement stated that fuel shipments incurred delay fines during the truce period, amounting to 11 million dollars due to piracy, detention and delaying their entry to the ports of Hodeidah.

The YPC confirmed that the complicity of the relevant UN formations with the US-Saudi aggression seriously contributes to the exacerbation of explicit violations of the truce agreement.

It pointed out that this complicity became an actual participation in the siege through the coordinates sent by the UNIVM to the ships authorized to go to the detention area and stay there, waiting for a permit to allow them to reach the ports of Hodeidah.

The YPC holds the US-Saudi aggression and the UN responsible for all the direct and indirect humanitarian and economic consequences and repercussions resulting from the continuation of the strict blockade on fuel ships.

A UN-brokered truce lasted for six months in the seven-year-old war waged by Saudi Arabia and its regional allies supported by US and western countries against Yemen.

The truce, however, expired amid the Saudi-led coalition’s constant violations of the agreement and its refusal to properly lift a siege that it has been enforcing against Yemen since the beginning of the war.

Although the US-Saudi aggression seeks to extend thetruce, it with UN complicity, is still evading the implementation of humanitarian and legal entitlements, foremost of which is the paying employee salaries and entering fuel ships to the port of Hodeidah, which made Sana’a refuse to extend the temporary truce.

The head of the National Delegation Mohammed Abdulsalam censured the aggressor coalition for failing to renew the truce deal and deteriorating the humanitarian crisis in the country as a result of its intransigence and disavowal of measures that alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.
