Dozens of fuel locomotives burned in battle near Ma’rib

Dozens of locomotives loaded with oil derivatives and domestic gas were set on fire in the Al-Arakin junction in Ma’rib, following armed clashes between Hadi forces and tribal gunmen, tribal sources confirmed

The sources said that gas oil locomotives were hit by the clashes, which led to their explosion and burning, and the fire spread to a position where dozens of locomotives loaded with oil and gas are present. The fire can reportedly be seen up to 50 kilometers away.

Top member in the Supreme Political Council Mohammed Ali al-Houthi held the Saudi-led coalition and their mercenaries responsible for the burning of the locomotives.

In a tweet, he said “we hold the countries of aggression and mercenaries in Ma’rib responsible for burning dozens of trailers meant for citizens.The clashes are against the rules of safety and are a waste of people’s money.”

“This is evidence that the repressive administration pursued by the Saudi officers and their mercenaries against the inhabitants of Ma’rib,  does not take into account the preservation of the people,” he added.

Al-Houthi also noted that the countries of aggression have for the past six years depended on fire and destruction in their bid to occupy Yemen.
