UAE-backed mercenaries worsen fuel crisis by raising taxes on fuel transports

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias have raised levies imposed on small tankers loaded with fuel in Aden city, informed sources reported on Tuesday.

The so-called Security Belt of the STC has raised taxes imposed on small fuel trucks coming from Shabwah province or leaving the refineries in Aden, by 30 percent, up to over 750,000 riyals, the sources said.

Since the beginning of this week, the city of Aden has been witnessing a crisis in gasoline at all fuel stations belonging to the Yemeni Petroleum Company, including the city’s power stations.
