Heavy fuel crisis hits occupied Yemeni province of Hadhramaut

Several cities in the coalition-occupied Yemeni province of Hadhramaut have been experiencing a fuel crisis in the past few hours, local sources said.

The sources confirmed that civil fuel stations closed their doors to citizens, and limited the sale of fuel to the oil company’s stations, which ad a result have been seeing congestion and long queues of cars.

Moreover, the sources explained that the price of a liter of gasoline in the oil company’s stations exceeded 890 riyals, and the price on the black market exceeded 1,150 riyals.

Pro-UAE troops in the Hadhramaut Valley resumed the establishment of armed points in mid-last week, and prevented the passage of oil tankers from going to Mukalla and the rest of Yemen.

The tribes demand the military enlistment of 25,000 Hadhramaut residents in order to replace the so-called First Military Zone forces, whom are loyal to the Islah Party, as well as demanding an end to corruption in Hadhramaut’s oil and fish industries.
