An oil vessel has arrived at the Yemeni western port of Hodeida, the Houthi-run Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) said Friday, with 29,499 tons of diesel onboard.
The tanker 'Damas' was released after 20 days of detention by the Arab coalition in the Red Sea, YPC added in a statement.
The YPC accused the coalition of detaining 10 other oil tankers for 116 days now.
These detained vessels carry "142,913 tons of petrol and 148,410 tons of diesel, as well as other ships carrying food, medicine and cooking gas," according to the statement.
The Arab coalition forces "persistently deny oil vessels access to Hodeida port, although they have UN approvals," YPC claimed.
