The Saudi-led coalition has seized another Yemen-bound fuel ship in violation of the terms of a two-month truce brokered by the United Nations. The Yemen Petroleum Company said the ship was denied docking at the port of Hudaydah even though it had gone through required inspections and obtained clearance from the U-N. Essam al-Mutawakel, a company spokesman, censured the coalition’s acts of piracy. He said the coalition had also seized two other ships in the past. Yemen has been reeling from a severe fuel shortage and a tight siege since Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a war on the impoverished country in 2015.
