Yemen – Saudi Authorities Seize Oil Ships Going to Hodeidah


Saudi Authorities seize 156 Thousand Tons of Oil at Hodeidah Port

The US-Saudi Aggression continues to seize Yemeni oil ships, preventing their arrival to the port of Hodeidah, an official source at Hodeidah port said.

The source said in a statement, Tuesday, that the coalition is still seizing oil ships carrying 156,000 tons of oil derivatives.

The source pointed out that the coalition navy also seized two ships after unloading their cargo in the port of Hodeidah, in order to continue piracy activities as part of the siege of the Yemeni people.

The source announced last Saturday, that the coalition of aggression seized eight oil and food ships loaded with nearly 167,000 tons at sea and prevented them from reaching Yemen.

The Saudi-led war has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. According to the United Nations, more than 24 million people are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.

The invading coalition has also been enforcing a tight embargo the Sana’a International Airport in the capital — which acts as a lifeline for the impoverished nation — since August 2015, when it also imposed a tight naval blockade on country, particularly on Hodeidah, which also acts as another lifeline for Yemen.
