ADEN, Yemen: Insurgent militias in Yemen have detained and looted more than 63 relief vessels packed with aid provided by the Gulf Cooperation
Council (GCC) countries, an official said.
That was the tally at Hodeidah and Saleef ports since the coup militias took control of local operations, said Abdul Raqeeb Fatah, the Yemeni minister of local administration and president of the Supreme Committee of Relief.
The official said in a statement on Sunday that militias have detained and looted more than 550 relief convoys in the entrances to the provinces under their control, which caused the deterioration and aggravation of the local humanitarian situation.

The Yemeni official added that the militia control of the port of Hodeidah has become a concern for the international community and a threat to international shipping, especially given that ships carrying humanitarian aid and relief were targeted. The last vessel targeted was a UAE ship carrying medical aid.
