Crude Oil Pipeline Attacked in Yemen Amid Ongoing Conflict

Unknown assailants targeted and blew up a major crude oil pipeline in Yemen’s Shabwa province, causing significant damage. The pipeline, responsible for transporting crude oil from the Jannah Hunt oil field to the Nushima export port, suffered the attack following the withdrawal of military personnel responsible for its security.

The soldiers reportedly left their posts due to unpaid salaries from the government. Yemen’s crude oil export operations have already been severely disrupted by the prolonged conflict between the government and the Iran-backed Houthi militia. The recent pipeline attack further compounds the challenges, undermining the nation’s infrastructure and economic stability.
