The Houthis accuse the Arab coalition of seizing a fuel ship

The Houthis accused the Arab coalition of seizing the ambulance diesel ship "Amperius", which was on its way to the port of Hodeidah, which is controlled by "Ansar Allah" in western Yemen.


The spokesman for the Yemeni Oil Company in Sana'a, Issam Al-Mutawakel, said in a post on "Facebook" that "the coalition of aggression is still practicing piracy on oil ships, as it has today detained the diesel ambulance (Amperius), which carries 30,899 tons, despite its inspection and obtaining an entry permit from the United Nations." .


Al-Mutawakil added that "the United Nations did not put an end to this piracy, either before or during the announced truce," stressing that "the number of seized ships has become two ambulances."

And last Monday, Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak announced the issuance of entry permits for 7 oil derivatives ships during the first and second weeks of the truce, so far, to the port of Hodeidah.


Minister Bin Mubarak stated that the Houthis are collecting fees on ship cargo, which were intended to pay the salaries of employees, stressing the need to "employ these revenues to pay salaries now."
