Damas oil ship docks at Hodeida port

HODEIDA, Damas ship docked and unloaded its cargo on Saturday in the port of Hodeida.

The ship carrying 29,491 tons of diesel was held by the aggression coalition for nearly 200 days despite having a permit by the United Nations.

The acting governor of Hodeida Mohammed Qahim condemned the arbitrary acts of the Saudi-Emirati aggression coalition of continuing to prevent ships from entering the port.

Such acts reflects the aggression’s determination to continue the blockade and increase the suffering of the Yemeni people, he said.

The aggression is still holding 19 ships carrying around 232,955 tons of gasoline, 176,574 tons of diesel, 16,356 tons of domestic gas, 40,502 tons of Mazut, said oil company office’s director in Hodeida Osamah al-Khatib.

He said the delay fines due to the coalition’s detention of Damas tanker amounted to $4.4 million.
