Houthis detain dozens of tankers loaded with fuel in Afar in Baydha


The Houthi gunmen are holding dozens of tankers loaded with oil derivatives in Afar district of al-Malajem, in the central province of Albaydha, from Marib and Hadramawt provinces.

A local source told Al-Masdar online that the Houthis were holding the tankers at the customs post they had developed in Afar, for the second consecutive month, and were blocking their passage to the provinces under their control.

He noted that the Houthis wanted to fabricate a crisis in oil derivatives and sell them at double prices.

The Houthis had developed a customs post in the Afar area on the road linking al-Bayda and Marib, imposing exorbitant sums of money on oil derivatives and food carriers under the name of customs up to two million per tanker.
