A drone attack targets Al-Dabba port in Hadhramout to prevent the continuation of the massive looting of Yemen’s oil wealth by the Saudi-led coalition.
Al Mayadeen correspondent to Sanaa said that reports emerged about the departure of a tanker without being loaded with oil following an attack on the Al-Dhaba port in Hadramout, eastern Yemen.
The tanker ship left following a drone attack on the oil port, our correspondent added.
He further stated that the drone attack on Al-Dhaba port is the second in less than a month which aims to prevent the continuation of the massive looting of Yemen’s oil wealth by the Saudi-led coalition.
The Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saree stated today that the Yemeni forces “succeeded in forcing an oil tanker that tried to approach the port of Al-Dhaba in the south of the country to leave.”
Saree added, “The ship, which was on a mission to loot large quantities of oil, refused to respond to the warnings of the armed forces, and the enemy tried to take measures that the armed forces were able to monitor and deal with appropriately.”
He stressed that “the Yemeni armed forces continue to protect the sovereign national wealth so that its revenues become at the service of the Yemenis, and to cover the salaries of all employees in all Yemeni regions.”

On October 21, a drone attack targeted Al-Dabba port in Hadhramout as a Greek ship tries to dock in order to load stolen Yemeni oil, despite repeated warnings.
In a similar context, the Sanaa Government’s Information Minister Daifallah Al-Shami confirmed in an exclusive interview with Al Mayadeen that drones are today the most effective weapons in Yemen’s arsenal, creating a deterrence on the battlefield.
For its part, the Yemeni Southern Movement participating in the National Dialogue Conference issued a statement in which it threatened any parties implicated in the looting of Yemeni wealth. The movement stressed that whether the companies are local, regional, or international, they should abide by the decisions of Sanaa’s authorities.
The movement considered that the targeting of the port and the ship is something every Yemeni should be proud of as the heroic armed forces are performing their duty.
It is worth noting that the head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, issued directives at the beginning of October to send final official letters to all companies and entities concerned with the looting of Yemeni sovereign wealth to stop their looting completely.
The leader of the Ansar Allah movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, warned the Saudi coalition against continuing to loot Yemen’s national wealth.
Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesperson Yahya Saree advised foreign companies complicit in the plundering of Yemen’s wealth to take the warnings of the leader of the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, seriously.
