The Yemeni Gas Company has said that Houthi terrorists are preventing, for the third week in a row, the arrival of domestic gas coming from the Safer Company in Marib Governorate, to the areas under the militia's control, thus forcing the people to buy imported gas, and at an exorbitant price.
The company has said in a statement that "the Houthi coup militia have been closing the land entrances to the militia-controlled governorates and cities for the second week and prevented the entry of trailers loaded with domestic gas from the Yemeni Gas Safer Company (Marib) ) in an indifference to the suffering of nearly 25 million citizens in those regions the militia control after it turned those areas into an open prison in which all methods of oppression and types of injustice are practiced.
The company confirmed that "the militia have prevented the entry of trailers from the entrances to Al-Jawf Governorate, which are loaded with local gas sourced from Safer, which is sold to citizens in the governorates that are under the militia's control, at an amount of 4,500 riyals per cylinder, and the militia replaced it with gas imported through the port of Hodeidah, which is sold to neighborhood sale points at a price of 7,200 riyals per cylinder."
The company stated that these steps taken by the Houthi militia aim to "enrich the leaders and supervisors of the militia at the expense of doubling the burdens on our patient people
