The Houthi militia invests the proceeds of the armistice ships in the mine industryEnglish - Monday 04 July 2022 الساعة 07:06 pm
On the impact of a speech for media consumption by the leader of the militia, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, in which he explained some of the texts attributed to what was called (the era of Imam Ali to Malik al-Ashtar), one of the military leaders who fought in the ranks of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib, the dose of the Houthi militia came by raising the prices of a gallon of gasoline to 14,000 riyals, and diesel to 17,500 riyals, as the burdens of citizens in Sana’a and its neighboring governorates have increased exponentially.
In the context of his lecture, Al-Houthi spoke about (mercy and human faith values, which are the basis for dealing with believers, and the foundations of the relationship with society from a position of responsibility, and that a person should not be savage in his position of responsibility, savage in his way of dealing with people).
On the other hand, Al-Houthi directed the oil company in Sana’a to raise the prices of oil derivatives, under the pretext of exploiting the price difference in the manufacture of explosives and mines, mobilizing for wars, and developing the permanence and continuity of wars and conflicts, in contrast to the requirements of the alleged truce and the hypothetical peace trends.
The oil company claimed that the Houthi militia dose also came with the aim of (supporting the national economy to stabilize exchange rates), a famous lie that is refuted by the reality of the high prices of basic commodities and foodstuffs, including the rise in the price of eggs to 90 riyals per egg.
These trends confirm the Houthi militia's exploitation of the proceeds of oil derivatives ships entering the port of Hodeidah under the alleged truce on April 2, 2022, to besiege and fight Yemenis at home and abroad.
These trends also contradict the contents of the armistice agreement, which stipulated allocating the revenues of oil derivatives ships to the account of the salaries of state employees.
It is noteworthy that the announced truce included the cessation of all offensive military operations from the second of April to June 2, (renewed for two additional months), the entry of 18 ships of oil derivatives to the port of Hodeidah, the operation of two commercial flights per week to Sana’a, and the operation of two flights per week from Sana’a to Egypt and Jordan.
Commenting on this, activists on social networks launched a sarcastic campaign, considering the new dose in the prices of oil derivatives to be the dose of Malik Al-Ashtar, Malik bin Al-Harith Al-Nakh’i, famous for Al-Ashtar (37 AH) (657 AD).
