Unidentified activists blew up an oil pipeline in Shabwah province in southeastern Yemen, according to a provincial administration source.
“Activists blew up an oil pipeline at the junction of Radum town in southeast (province) Shabwa, extending from the S2 oil sector in al-Aqla town to the Iyaz sector in Jardan district north of Atak (city), and from there to al-Namshiya district, which is adjacent to an oil port on the Arabian Sea,” the source said.
The source added that local security forces were taking steps to prosecute the activists who had blown up the pipeline.
The political and military conflict in Yemen between the government and the Houthi insurgents of the Ansar Allah Shiite movement has been ongoing since 2014. Since March 2015, the government has been supported by the Arab military coalition led by Saudi Arabia. In December 2018, the parties to the conflict in Yemen met for the first time in several years at a UN-sponsored negotiating table in Stockholm. They reached a number of important agreements, including on the exchange of prisoners, a ceasefire in the Red Sea port city of Hodaida and its transfer by the Houthis to the United Nations.
