Yemen is battling hard to regain its usurped gas facility, even though it is on brink of famine

 

Experts from the International Monetary Fund have recently warned of the crippling impact on the conflict in Yemen on the country's economy and indicated the country's need for revenues.

The mission said in a press release that "raising domestic revenues would support macroeconomic stability by reducing the need for financing from the central bank." The IMF's press release is only one of many voices pointing out Yemen's needs for revenues as it faces a dramatic fall in the value of its currency that puts its economy near collapse and people close to famine.

Yet, Yemen's government is battling hard to wrest control over its natural gas liquefaction and export facility back from the hands of the UAE forces who have been occupying the facility for years and using it as a detention center for the government's civilian supports and training rogue anti-government militias.

Tensions rose to the surface this week as the governor of Shabw where the facility is, Mohammed Bin Edei, and the local government are insisting on the evacuation of the facility to allow Yemen to resume exporting liquefied natural gas. The army surrounds the installation, the UAE warplanes conduct threat flights overhead and Saudi mediators are reportedly coming in between.

Yemenis are looking forward to the good news of a UAE end of the occupation of the Yemeni facility which, if operated, will earn Yemen some badly needed revenues and alleviate the Yemeni humanitarian crisis that the whole world, and the UAE among them, sheds tears on.
