SANA'A, Aug. 23 (Saba) - The vessel VOSS SPIRIT, which is loaded with 29,987 tons of diesel and supposed to dock at Hodeida port, has left the aggression's detention area for an unknown destination, the Yemeni Oil Company (YOC) said Monday.

YOC's official spokesman Issam al-Mutawakil said the vessel authorized by the United Nations was forced to leave after it was prevented from reaching the port of Hodeida and detained by the US-Saudi aggression coalition for over 8 months.

Al-Mutawakil said that the US-Saudi aggression coalition is still holding 4 oil ships, adding they have been detained for more than eight months.

Al-Mutawakil stated the seized ships include 2 ships carrying gas, and 2 loaded with diesel with a total weight of 59,707 tons.

He denounced the international silence, indicating to the complicity of the international community and international organizations with the aggression countries in preventing the entry of the oil ships to the port of Hodeida.
