Shura confirms its supports to all options of armed forces to protect national wealth

SANAA, Nov. 23 (YPA) – The Shura Council on Wednesday confirmed its support for all the options taken by the Yemeni armed forces to protect the national wealth from tampering so that its revenues return to cover employees’ salaries in all Yemeni regions.

In a statement issued today, the Council blessed the armed forces’ operation in preventing an oil ship belonging to the Saudi-led coalition from approaching the oil port of Al-Dhaba in Hadramout province.

The Council praised the high vigilance of the Yemeni armed forces and their capabilities in protecting the sovereign oil wealth of the country and stopping the coalition forces and their mercenaries from tampering with it.

In its statement, the Council considered that what was looted from the value of Yemeni oil, which amounted to 14 billion dollars and went to accounts of the coalition and its mercenaries in the National Bank of Saudi Arabia, was sufficient to cover the employees’ salaries that have been discontinued for more than seven years.
