Hundreds of tribesmen in Hadhramaut Governorate, eastern Yemen, have begun arriving in the Dabba area, which contains the most important oil export ports, as part of efforts to stop the looting of the governorate’s petroleum.
Activists on social media showed pictures of hundreds of vehicles arriving in the Al-Ain area near the Al-Dabba oil port.
Publicband tribal figures in Hadhramaut had earlier called for the people of the province, who have been suffering from high prices and the collapse of Yemeni currency, to shut down the oil port in the province.
The call coincided with the arrival of an oil tanker in preparation for the export of a new shipment to the countries of the coalition.
Tribal militants in Hadhramaut have been carrying out massive protests for weeks, during which they succeeded in preventing oil transports from leaving the province.
