YGC: Saudi-led coalition still seizing domestic gas vessel Eugenia
The Yemen Gas Company revealed that the Saudi-led coalition continues to seize the ship, Eugenia, which carries thousands of tons of domestic gas on board.
The Yemen Gas Company's (YGC) spokesperson Ali Messar told Yemen's SABA news agency that the Saudi-led coalition continues to seize the ship Eugenia, which carries more than 8,258 tons of domestic gas on board.
Messar added that "the coalition of aggression has been seizing the ship since last April 27, ignoring the announced armistice which allows the entry of the UN ships to the ports of Al-Hudaydah.
He pointed out that the continuous seizing of the gas ship will result in a supply shortage, which would increase the suffering of citizens, as well as gas prices, due to the imposition of delay fines that result from this unjustified arbitrary detention.
The YGC called on the United Nations to act and release the gas vessel, Eugenia, and urged for the implementation of the announced armistice and the stopping of the piracy of gas, oil derivatives, food, and medicine ships.
Yemeni Supreme Political Council: Armistice has not made any progress
The head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, confirmed earlier this month that the announced truce did not make any progress regarding its most important provision, which is to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.
Al-Mashat added, "Despite all the concessions we made to demonstrate our keenness on peace, they were met with intransigence, stalling, and lack of response by the countries of aggression and those behind them."
Al-Mashat indicated that "the countries of aggression and their mercenaries control the sources of Yemeni oil and gas resources," revealing that they looted more than 129 million barrels of crude oil. He added that the value of the looted wealth was "enough to pay the salaries of all state employees," and that "the Republic of Yemen reserves its right to recover all the money looted by the mercenaries of aggression."
