Yemen's Houthis receive 3 oil ships in Hodeidah

Ahram Online , Saturday 4 Jul 2020

Yemen's Houthis announced on Saturday the arrival of three fuel ships to Hodeidah’s port, in the west of the country, DPA reported.

Yahya Sharaf Al-Din, Vice President of Ports Corporation, affiliated to the Houthis, said in a brief statement that Zeusit tanker which carries 29,134 tons of gasoline, reached Hodeidah, which is under the control of the group.

He announced the arrival of the tanker Sea Hart, which carries 27,000 tons of diesel, in addition to the tanker Hafez, which carries 26,953 tons of diesel.

The internationally recognised Yemeni government announced on Thursday it will allow four oil ships to enter Hodeidah for humanitarian reasons, said UN envoy to the country Martin Griffiths.

The Houthi group accuses the Yemeni government and the Arab coalition supporting it of detaining 22 oil ships and preventing their arrival in Hodeidah, which led to the creation of an acute fuel crisis in the group's areas for weeks.
