Houthi militants in the central Yemeni city of Ibb closed the only station for butane distribution in the city. The measure is an attempt to force provincial authorities to revoke a decision to raise the price of gas.
A Houthi military commander, who introduced himself as Abu Nidal, said that he closed the station because its manager and workers fled and left it unattended. He also explained that the station manager had refused to comply with an order by a Houthi judge to not raise the gas price.
Abu Nidal also said that Houthi militants, who refer to themselves as Ansar Allah, will take over the supervision of gas distribution in the city.
