Saudi invaders detain new fuel ship bound for Yemen despite truce

The Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) said on Thursday that the Saudi-led coalition seized a fuel ship despite obtaining entry permits from the United Nations, in a new violation of the temporary truce.

The company’s official spokesman, Essam Al-Mutawakel, said “The US-led aggression coalition seized the mazut-loaded ship (Golden Eagleii), which belongs to the electricity sector; despite it has been inspected and given a UN permit to enter the port of Hodeidah.”

He considered the ship detention an addition to the list of arbitrary practices and violations committed by the coalition, in light of the silence of the United Nations, whose envoy since the start of the armistice has not committed to removing obstacles and fulfilling the entry of the number of ships agreed upon.
