Revelation of Important Secrets Regarding the Interment of Nuclear Waste in Yemen
Important details regarding the decades-old burial of nuclear waste in Yemen have been revealed by Brigadier General Abdullah Bin Amer, the deputy director of the moral guidance department.
Follow-up – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:
According to Brigadier Bin Amer, the burying of nuclear waste in Yemeni territorial waters and along its coasts is a serious issue that dates back decades to a time when the previous government, through powerful individuals with close ties to the regime’s leader, permitted foreign companies to bury the waste in return for money. Such information ought to be made public so that everyone is aware of its risks and repercussions.
Before joining a smuggling network through the Bab al-Mandab and Mokha, the Saleh regime used to cooperate with smugglers; after taking power, he handed over those areas to his closest allies. According to Brigadier Bin Amer, after Yemeni unity, the smuggling process expanded to include the southern coasts, and foreign companies were allowed to bury the waste.
Bin Amer added that some may not believe that during some patrols, Yemeni naval forces were shelled from the Yemeni coast, i.e., from camps connected to Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmar, and when some violators were detained, orders were given to release them and even punish naval officers for preventing smuggling.
The Sana’a-based Ministry of Fisheries yesterday condemned the Saudi-led coalition’s attempts to turn Yemen into a dumping ground for its toxic waste.
The ministry issued a warning against agreeing to any deal between the Saudi Nuclear Authority and the government loyal to the coalition, “the mercenary government,” to restrict nuclear radiation brought on by toxic waste.
It confirmed that the impact of Saudi waste, which was buried and will be buried in desert and marine areas in Yemen, warns of a major environmental disaster.
It has been explained that the recent radiation detected in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea has caused significant damage to the coral reefs and marine ecosystems along the coasts of the provinces of Aden, Abyan, Al-Mahrah, and Hadramout, as well as the deaths of thousands of tons of fish and other marine life.
