The Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) on Wednesday confirmed the arrival of a ship carrying a small amount of oil derivatives to the port of Hodeidah.

“DISTYA PUSHTI vessel has arrived, carrying 9,951 tons of gasoline and 11 thousand  tons of diesel to the port of Hodeidah,” the company said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.

The statement noted that the ship was detained at sea by the coalition  of aggression for 55 days.

The company said that the arrived quantity is “very little,” that covers the local needs for only two days of the two substances in the normal course. Moreover, there is an urgent need in light of the suffocating ration crisis in the country due to the detention of oil tankers.

The statement added that the forces of aggression deliberately detained the oil derivatives tankers and prevented 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. This led to the emergence of a severe supply crisis witnessed by the whole world and its manifestations still exist until this moment.

The company renewed the call for the United Nations and the international community to pressure the coalition of aggression to immediately release the rest of the ships still detained at sea.

The coalition of aggression and its mercenaries continue to detain nine other oil tankers with more than 39,000 tons of gasoline and 123,000 tons of diesel.

Deputy Chairman of the Red Sea Ports Corporation, Eng. Yahya Sharaf Al-Din, said that “The release of Oil tankers, which still detained, depend on decision of the countries of aggression not the UN’s. Whenever they want to detain these ships and whenever they want to release them.”

Sharaf Al-Din explained in a statement to Almasirah TV that “after releasing only one of the detained ships, the countries of aggression did not recognize the United Nations permits, pointing out that the United Nations is a key partner in the aggression and complicit in the siege of Yemen.”

The Desta Pushti ship, loaded with a little amount of gasoline and diesel, arrived at the port of Hodeidah after being detained at sea by the aggression coalition for 55 days, but it only covers local needs for two days.

The Yemeni People organized a number of protests in several government, condemning the US-Saudi aggression for the continued detention of oil tankers. The aggression has prevented ships from unloading their cargo in Hodeidah port for a couple of months.

In Sa’ada, people of the governorate organized a protest to condemn the continued detention of ships, by the coalition of aggression, carrying oil derivatives and medicines. They also condemned the United Nations’ careless attitude towards this crime. “The detention of oil and food vessels is a crime and a stain on humanity,” the protesters explained.

In Amran, the Health and Population Office of Raidah organized a protest to condemn the continuation of detaining oil derivatives tankers. The statement condemned the arbitrary actions of the aggression coalition in detaining oil and food vessels and depriving the Yemeni People of their legitimate and guaranteed rights.

In Al-Mahweet popular protests were organized to condemn the detaining of the oil tankers and preventing them to enter Hodeidah, by the coalition of aggression.

The coalition of aggression and its mercenaries continue to detain nine other oil tankers with more than 39,000 tons of gasoline and 123,000 tons of diesel.

In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.

Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
