November 14, 2019

SANAA, Nov. 13 (Saba) - The Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) on Tuesday announced the arrival of two oil tankers carrying 59,499 tons of diesel at the port of Hodeidah after they were detained by Saudi-led aggression coalition for 33 days and 23 days.

'The coalition forces deliberately hold the ships of oil derivatives and prevent them from entering the port of Hodeidah in order to tighten the screws on citizens and increase their suffering despite the urgent need for petroleum materials,' the company said in a statement.

According to the statement, the company's director issued directives to the company's branch in Hodeidah to take the necessary procedures for laboratory testing of these shipments in the port of Hodeidah, arrange for their entry to unload if they meet the approved specifications and start loading to cover the needs of citizens and various vital sectors.
