Ministry of Electricity holds coalition responsible for power stations’ stop

SANAA, Jan. 17 (YPA) – The Ministry of Electricity and Energy in Sanaa on Monday held the Saudi-led coalition and the United Nations responsible for the stop of the ministry’s power stations due to a lack of fuel, which heralds an imminent humanitarian catastrophe.

In a statement during a protest vigil organized in front of the United Nations office in Sanaa, the ministry confirmed that the coalition not only hold the fuel ships and prevent their entry but went beyond that to target fuel stations and service facilities of the ministry.

The statement condemned the coalition’s use of fuel, which is necessary for the production of electricity in vital facilities like hospitals, water pumps, and sewage stations, as a weapon against civilians.
