Coalition continues to seize 2 fuel ships in clear violation of armistice

SANAA, Jun. 23 (YPA) – The Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) in Sanaa said on Thursday the US-backed Saudi-led coalition continued to detain two fuel ships with a total tonnage of 54,850 tons of gasoline.

The company indicated, in a statement, that the detained ships have United Nations permits and have completed all examination procedures through the mechanism of the Verification and Inspection Mission in Djibouti.

This confirms the coalition countries’ violation of the provisions of the International Convention on Human Rights, the rules of international humanitarian law and the law of armed conflict, and all applicable laws and customs, as well as their permanent disregard for the declared armistice and the Sweden agreement, according to the statement.
