Houthis holds a shipment of medicines belonging to the dialysis center in Ibb


The Houthi authorities in Ibb province have detained a shipment of medicines intended for kidney failure patients in the province.

According to medical sources, the customs post developed by the Houthi group in the Maytam area on the eastern port of the city has detained a consignment of medicines for patients with kidney failure, despite the official authorization of the cargo's passage facilities.

According to the sources, the shipment contains hundreds of medical supplies for patients with kidney failure provided by the National Drug Supply Programme, and the management of the Thawra hospital and the dialysis center are still making great efforts to allow the shipment of dialysis materials.

The administration of the Al-Thawra General Hospital in Ibb City sent a memo to Ibb customs requiring them to allow the insertion of the dialysis materials held in the port, but Customs refuses to enter them and claims money for their release under local mediations to release the shipment.

Over the past several months, Houthis authorities have detained more than once a number of medical shipments and medicines for patients with kidney failure and other shipments of the blood Bank Centre in the province and require payment of money in return for admission to the governorate.
