Shura Council sends messages to international media

SANA’A, Feb.16 (Saba) – The Shura Council sent on Tuesday a number of letters to heads of international media outlets that are transparent and neutral in their handling of global issues.
The letters included briefing on the continual human suffering of the Yemeni people as a result of the ongoing brutal war led by the Saudi regime against Yemen six years ago, which includes a stifling economic blockade.
The Shura Council’s letters referred to the detention of fuel ships by the US-Saudi aggression coalition and not allowing them to unload their shipments at the port of Hodeida despite having obtained the permits of the United Nations verification and inspection mission, in a flagrant violation of human rights.
“Preventing fuel ships from unloading their shipments in the Yemeni port of Hodeida is a crime that is no less terrible than the horrific crime of assassinating journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which shook the human conscience,” the letters said.
The Council called on the international media to give this humanitarian issue the appropriate space in their programmatic map and daily news bulletins on an ongoing basis.
