Al-Jazeera Television cited military and security sources in ‘Hodeidah’ as saying that a taker carrying 60,000 tons of crude has left Iran destined to the port city of Hodeidah in Yemen. According to those sources the Houthi rebels have previously taken over this port city, firing Mohammad Eshagh, the managing director of the port and replacing him with a person called Jamal Ayesh from their own group to have a free hand in operating the port fit to their own needs.
