SANA'A, Feb. 10 (Saba) - The General Federation of Yemeni Trade Unions (YWTUF) called on Wednesday on the international community and the United Nations to stop the maritime piracy practiced by the aggression forces against fuel, medicine, and food ships.

In a statement, the Federation condemned the acts of maritime piracy by the forces of aggression, which are a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and a violation of international charters and laws.

The statement pointed out that these practices violate the 'Stockholm' agreement, which stipulates that ships of fuel, food, and medicine are allowed to enter and reach the port of Hodeida smoothly, and stressed that they will not be intercepted or piracy.

The statement pointed out that this makes the UN organization a key partner in killing the Yemeni people and a major tool for legitimizing the crimes of the US-Saudi aggression and the blockade applied to Yemen and preventing fuel ships from reaching the port of Hodeida.

The Yemeni Workers Union affirmed that the continuing acts of piracy have catastrophic and humanitarian effects on health sectors, service sectors, and all work and production facilities.

The statement held America and the United Nations fully responsible for the suffering and humanitarian disasters that affected the health and service sectors and all the Yemeni people.

The statement called on the Arab Labor Organization, the Arab League, the International Labor Organization, the United Nations, brotherly and friendly federations, the International Trade Union, regional and international media, and human rights organizations and institutions to show solidarity to alleviate the suffering caused by the continued closure of Sana'a International Airport and the continued piracy and detention of oil derivative ships.
