After a senior Yemeni official warned that Houthis threatened to take control of and occupy Aden Port, Ministry of Defense officials have denied the possibility of such an occurrence.

The official had stated that the port could be seized just as Al-Towal Port had been seized by armed men.

In response, a Transportation Ministry official said, “The port [Aden Port] is run by the Yemeni government and is safe. No-one can threaten the port’s security, as some are trying to indicate, and the port itself is developing very well.”

The Ministry of Defense official added that it would respond to what took place at Al-Towal Port.
