Saudi coalition air defenses shoot at UAV over Yemen's Mukalla port
A local Yemeni source tells Al Mayadeen that a state of confusion after a UAV flew close to it.
Air defenses in the Mukalla port in Hadhramout were activated as a UAV was flying overhead, a local Yemeni source told Al Mayadeen on Tuesday.
According to the source, the air defenses were heard to be activated near the Mukalla port. "The air defenses fired after a UAV flew over the seaport in light of a Saudi coalition oil ship docking in it," the source added.
They revealed that a state of confusion prevailed over the dock before it was closed and the power was cut.
The Yemeni armed forces said a few days ago that they implemented a simple warning strike in order to prevent an oil ship from trying to loot crude oil through the Al-Daba port in Hadhramout.
Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesperson Yahya Saree called on investors in Saudi Arabia and the UAE to "move their investments to another country," stressing that "investment in the UAE and Saudi Arabia is risky."
Saree advised investors that "in order to ensure you do not lose any further, you must move your investment from an aggressor country to another [country]," as investing in countries such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia, is "risky," adding that "the doors are open."
Earlier, the Supreme Economic Committee in Sanaa announced it was still sending final letters to companies involved in looting Yemen's sovereign wealth in order to stop looting, in implementation of the directives of Supreme Political Council President Mahdi Al-Mashat.
Al-Mashat had issued directives to send the final official letters to all companies and entities concerned with the looting of Yemeni sovereign wealth to completely stop looting.
While the armistice between Sanaa and the Saudi coalition is yet to be renewed, the head of the Sanaa negotiating delegation, Mohammad Abd Al-Salam, pointed out that reports of some biased media outlets about an agreement to extend the UN-brokered humanitarian and military truce are false.
Sanaa Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf underlined that the SPC warnings "directed towards foreign companies operating in Yemen against the continuation of the coalition of aggression and its mercenaries in looting the oil and natural resources of the Yemeni people is a national decision in order to preserve the wealth of the Yemeni people."
The top diplomat pointed out that Sanaa, despite its strength and ability, "continues to extend its hand for a just and honorable peace, and confirms its readiness to renew the truce, which was not extended due to the failure to fulfill the rightful demands of the Yemeni people."
