Saudi Arabia denies Yemenis wheat cargo

06.02.2017

A ship carrying wheat for the impoverished Yemeni people was denied access to Al-Hudeidah Port by Saudi military, forcing it to change course to the Saudi city of Jeddah.

Sources confirmed that the wheat cargo, which was officially licensed by the Arab Coalition, had been emptied in the Saudi port.

The Port of Al-Hodeidah is the only entry to the provinces under the control of the National Salvation Government in Yemen.
