News - Yemen:
Yemen's Armed Forces thwarted an attempt to loot crude oil from the port of Al-Dhabbah in Hadhramaut Governorate, used for smuggling by the US-Saudi aggression.
“The Armed Forces operation forced an Oil ship that was in the port to leave after reaching near the port. Several warning messages were sent but the ship didn't respond,” the Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said in tweet early Thursday. He stressed that the enemy tried to take measures to avoid direction but the Armed Forces were able to monitor and deal with the situation.
The Armed Forces reiterated their commitment to protecting the sovereign national wealth as one of the rights of the Yemeni people.
On November 10th, Yemeni Armed Forces thwarted an attempt to loot crude oil from the port of Qena in Shabwa Governorate, used by the US-Saudi aggression for smuggling.
In late October, Yemen's Armed Forces announced in a military statement the implementation of a warning drone strike to prevent an oil ship that was trying to loot crude oil through the port of Dabba in Hadramout Governorate.
Brigadier Sare'e explained that the warning message came to prevent the continuous looting of oil wealth and not to allocate it to serve the people in paying salaries and services.
He pointed out that the message was after addressing the ship operators and informing them of the decision based on the Yemen laws in force and international laws. He pointed out that the ship was dealt "with cautionary measures through which the Yemeni Armed Forces were keen to preserve the safety and security of Yemen's infrastructure and the security of the ship and its crew."
The Armed Forces spokesman renewed the warning by saying: "We will not hesitate to do what it takes to stop and prevent any ship trying to plunder the wealth of our Yemeni people." He stressed that the Armed Forces are able to launch more warning operations in defense of Yemenis and to protect their wealth from tampering and looting.
In his speech on the 8th anniversary of the September 21 revolution, the Leader of the Revolution Sayyed Abdulmalik al-Houthi warned against continuing to plunder the national wealth by any foreign company that colluded with the coalition of aggression.
In turn, President Mahdi Al-Mashat directed the Supreme Economic Committee, on the first of October, to edit the final official correspondences of all companies and entities related to the looting of Yemeni sovereign wealth, to completely stop looting operations.
