Saudi-led Coalition Blocks Tankers From Delivering Fuel And Supplies To Yemen

The Saudi-led coalition has prevented at least 20 tankers carrying energy derivatives from unloading their essential consignments in Yemen although they hold proper permits.

This was announced in a statement by the Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) on August 24th.

The company’s statement said that 20 vessels are now detained off the coast of Yemen for different time periods of which 16 tankers are loaded with 400,979 tons of gasoline and diesel fuel.

The YPC claimed that this is a flagrant violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, besides all international humanitarian principles.

The Saudi-led coalition’s supposed activities also ignore the provisions of the Stockholm agreement, which stressed in its entirety the need for facilitating the arrival of basic materials and humanitarian aid to the Yemen’s western port of al-Hudaydah in a way that meets the needs of Yemen.

The YPC also said that the Saudi-led coalition continues enforcing a tight blockade against the Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen, including al-Hudaydah.

This is reportedly carried out through various acts of maritime piracy in order to prevent ships carrying oil derivatives, natural gas, food, medicine and other basic commodities from docking at the port of Hudaydah.

“Ships are not allowed to anchor in Hudaydah port despite the fact that they have undergone all inspection procedures in Djibouti by the United Nations Verification and Inspection Mechanism for Yemen (UNVIM),” the company said.

It added, “These ships have acquired necessary UN permits that verify their cargos conform to the conditions stipulated in the concept of verification and inspection mechanism operations.”

Zionism = EVIL

Saudi cowardly loser cunts are using their Zionist masters pathetic war crimes tactics. The low life Wahhabi cunts are in for a major pounding by the Ansarallah warriors soon who are getting newer supersonic missiles.

Ansalallah need decent anti-ship missiles, the ones the modified for previous attacks were older C801 and cruise missiles from yesteryear.
Iran has remodelled Chinese C802s into very effective anti-ship missiles (NOOR) which would be useful about now

Let’s just sink one of Saudis battle ship with several of these.

Saudis are being propped up by the west, which is as complicit in their war crimes.

Especially the U.S. and the UK.

When liberal democracies or their accomplices commit genocide it is good and right, while those who suffer it must be severely sanctioned and children must die of hunger and without treatment, the old-fashioned Nazis would have a good lesson to learn from these today.

Ashok Varma

There are no liberal western democracies, it is just a thin veneer for exploitative capitalism. The liberal west has waged more wars and killed more people than rest of the world combined. They have an insatiable appetite for war, greed and dehumanisation.

Yayah Saree needs to drop a drone or three on those Saudi ships …


Unveiling the most obvious thing! UN is supporting piracy and Khazar “Elite” oil interests. What can you expect from Saudi Arabia after the Quincy act on Februray 14 1945 between king Saud and the US??
Yemen is full of petroleum that’s the point understand the game.

Simon Ndiritu

Do Zionists and their terrorists hands listen to any law, no! the Saudis pigs will continue detaining oil, food and medicine for poor Yemenis while the orange clown sell them more arms to achieve these ends, all in the name of “democracy”. Its really sad for Yemen and other countries that are subjected to US zio-terror

Icarus Tanović

Well said my brother.


Good, give nothing to the Houthis but bombs and death. Oil? the apes don’t need it anyway.

Lux et Veritas

You represent the ugly child’s face of Zionism.

Concrete Mike

Bullshit mind your own business.

The saudis made a deal, just about when their army was getting destroyed.

The saudis are acting just like you fools, ignore the international community’s will if it goes against you, but us it to your advantage if it suits you.

Pathetic and useless strategy.


Has Iran tested any of their new torpedoes? Have their subs hit actual targets with their weaponry? Well, here’s a good chance to try them out.

Icarus Tanović

We need to attack them on that thin belt they occupied say 50 km south of Al Hudaidah from four or five directions and make a cut and scythe movement.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
