Power stations in Saudi-held city of Aden on the brink of shutdown due to fuel crisis

The power stations of the Saudi-occupied port city of Aden, southern Yemen, are about to stop in the coming hours, local sources said on Thursday.

The sources attributed the reasons for the potential shutdown of power stations to the lack of fuel to operate the power stations, indicating that the Saudi grant announced a month ago had not arrived yet.

“The depletion of diesel stocks from Aden refineries threatens the residents and people of the city with darkness during the nights of the holy month Ramadan,” the sources explained.

The fuel crisis for power stations in Aden has continued since the Saudi-led coalition took control of the city, amid the collapse of all basic services in the city.
