Houthis say coalition allowed access to additional oil tanker

2022-05-09 | Since 2 Month

Hodeida (Debriefer) The Saudi-led coalition has released another oil tanker, spokesman for the Houthi-run Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) said Sunday, allowing access to a large cargo of cooking gas.
The Arab coalition allowed 'Yoginia Gas' ship access to Hodeida port, Ali Miesar added, after detention since late last Ramadan.
Based on available information, the vessel is loaded with nearly 8,260 metric tons of cooking gas.
The Arab coalition "obdurately carries out piracy acts against oil tankers, despite the UN permits, blatantly ignoring the humanitarian truce," the Houthi official said.
The Saudi-led coalition was mandated by the UN Security Council Resolution (2216) to check ships heading for Yemen, in order to curb arms deliveries to the Iranian-backed Houthi group.
On 2 April, the UN special envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, said the Yemeni warring parties agreed to a 2-month truce.
Under the truce, the coalition would allow 18 oil tankers access to the Houthi-held Hodeida port.
