SANAA (Debriefer)--Three ships carrying around 90 tons of fuels have arrived at Hodeidah seaport, the Houthi group said.
Two ships carried 59.624 tons of benzene and the third 29.690 tons of diesel, said Esam Al-Mutawakil, spokesperson for the Houthi-run Yemen petroleum company, on Monday.
The ships had been held by a Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen for between 85 and 220 days, he said, adding that the fines on them reached around $11.3 million.
On Monday, executive director of the company Ammar Al-Adhru'e wrote on Twitter: "The company will work with all agents to end the fuel crisis in all provinces in the coming days".
The ships have to pay as much as 40% of the value of their cargoes in fines, Al-Adhru'e said.
The Houthi group is accusing the coalition and the Yemeni government of holding fuel ships in the Red Sea and preventing them from entering Hodeidah seaport.
