Yemen Petroleum company confirmed on Friday that the Saudi-led coalition is still detaining five tankers loaded with gasoline and diesel despite obtaining entry permits to Hodeidah port.


“Although the UN envoy to Yemen told the Security Council on November 22 that tankers are entering Hodeidah port and the crisis has been averted, the aggression coalition is still detaining the tankers to further tighten the siege on the Yemeni people,” the company said in a statement.


The company said that the quantity that is trapped at sea amounts to 54 thousand and 908 tons of gasoline and 83 thousand and 699 tons of diesel.
