Saudi blockade continues to illegally hold vessel carrying over 8,000 tons of gas for Yemen

The Yemen Gas Company confirmed on Tuesday that the US-Saudi aggression continued to detain the ship Eugenia, which is carrying around 8,258 tons of domestic gas, official Yemeni news agency Saba reported.

YGC official spokesman Ali Masar said that the aggression has detained the ship since last April 27, ignoring the announced truce and the United Nations entry permit to the port of Hodeidah.

Masar pointed out that “the continued detention of the gas ship will lead to supply bottlenecks and will increase the suffering of citizens in light of the ongoing violations and piracy of the aggression, in addition to the high costs of gas price due to the imposition of delay fines resulting from the unjustified arbitrary detention.”

The YGC called on the United Nations to do its duty and ensure the release of the vessel.

It called for implementation of the announced truce and for urgent action to stop Saudi piracy on gas, oil derivative, food and medicine shipments.
