Yemen Oil Company: The company’s stock of diesel finishes
Essam al-Mutawakel, the Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC)’s spokesman on Friday warned of the suspension of vital service sectors and hospitals during the next five days, due to the company’s depletion of diesel stocks.
AL- Mutawakel, during the protest organized by the company’s employees and unions and a large gathering of citizens after the 63rd Friday prayer in front of the United Nations office in Sanaa, said that the total of the fuel ships being held by the US-Saudi-led aggression coalition amounted to 19 ships, with a total amount of 430,000 tons of various oil derivatives, including 340,000 tons of gasoline and diesel.
The United Nations did not respond to the repeated appeals to allow the entry of the fuel vessels, indicating that there is insistence by the coalition countries to continue to hold the ships, Al-Mutawakel explained.
He added, “Unfortunately, they want the Yemeni people to remain in a state of critical condition, and as soon as the oil company’s stock of petroleum products ends, they will refresh this people with one ship that only covers needs of five days.”
A statement renewed the call for the UN to put pressure on the aggression coalition to release all the held fuel ships, to lift the ban on Sanaa International Airport and Ras Issa port, and neutralize the economy from targeting.
