2022-09-04 | Since 1 Year

Sana'a (Debriefer) The United Nations has colluded with the Saudi-led coalition in breaking the UN-brokered truce, and effectively participated in seizing the oil tankers, the Houthi-run Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) said Friday.
The Arab coalition persistently practiced piracy against, and seized all oil tankers since the truce started, apart from the delay in Djibouti waiting for UN inspection and clearance, the YPC added in a statement carried by the Sana'a-based Saba.
Out of 54, 33 oil tankers only arrived at Hodeida port, including 4 vessels that were released on 2 August, at the end of the truce's first extension, the statement read.
During the second extension, no oil tanker was released, it added, noting that US$ 11-million demurrage was imposed on the tankers during the truce.
The YPC accused the UNIVM of giving the cleared vessels ordinates and instructions to sail to detention area where they wait for another permit from the Arab coalition's warships.
No immediate comments have been released by the UN on the Houthi charges.
