An official source at Hodeidah’s port stated that the Saudi-led coalition continues to detain 6 oil tankers loaded with quantities of oil derivatives.

The source also confirmed that “the US-Saudi aggression detained 8 tankers, 6 of them are loaded with 150 thousand tons of gasoline and diesel, while two other tankers are loaded with 17 thousand tons of food.” The aggression also detains, for the 8th day, a tanker after its offloading in Hodeidah port.

These criminal and arbitrary measures committed by the US-backed coalition come despite the UN envoy’s briefing to the Security Council last week in which he assured the International community that fuel ships have access to the port of Hodeidah thereby precluding any possible crisis.
