Saudi-led forces illegally seize another fuel ship bound for Yemen

Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) said  on Wednesday that the US-backed Saudi-led coalition has seized a new diesel ship despite having been inspected and obtaining entry permits from the United Nations, two days after a ship was seized and taken off Jizan.

“The US-backed Saudi-led aggression has detained the diesel ship Princess Khadija despite its inspection and obtaining entry permits from the United Nations,” the spokesman for the YPC,  Essam Al-Mutawakel said in a tweet on hit twitter account.

Al-Mutawakel indicated that with the detention of the diesel ship Princess Khadija, the number of ships seized by the aggression increases to two fuel ships. He stressed that the two ships are still among the entitlements of the temporary truce.

Last Monday, the coalition of aggression seized the diesel ship Pericles after it was delayed in Djibouti for inspection and obtaining entry permits from the United Nations Verification and Inspection Committee.
