YPC: Coalition seizes new fuel ship at sea

SANAA, Nov. 15 (YPA) – The Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) on Tuesday said that the US-backed Saudi-led coalition seized a new fuel ship and prevented it from reaching Hodeida port.

The company’s official spokesman, Issam Al-Mutawakel, stated that the coalition detained the benzene-ship “Red Ruby”, despite its inspection in Djibouti.

He pointed out that the coalition is still practicing piracy, and temperamentally allow the entry of fuel ships of a humanitarian nature.

Al-Mutawakel stressed that these arbitrary acts and practices aim to increase the suffering of the Yemeni people.
