HODEIDAH – The US- backed Saudi-led aggression coalition forces on Thursday released one of the 11 oil derivatives tankers held for 64 days, sources at the port of Hodeidah reported.
According to the sources, the amount of oil and diesel on the released tanker does not cover the necessary needs in the service sectors.
The Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) announced, on Wednesday, the state alert due to the piracy of aggression forces in the detention of oil derivatives tankers, while the United Nations remained silent about the practices of aggression forces that threaten the lives of the Yemeni People.
Eleven oil tankers carrying more than 106.353 tons of gasoline and 180.772 tons of diesel are still held by the aggression coalition and its mercenaries for 64 days.
Shortages of fuel have caused spiking up its price to 200 percent in some areas, making the transportation of life-saving aid to communities-in-need more expensive.
