Journalist Fathi Bin Lazraq revealed the presence of a huge amount of explosive materials (ammonium nitrate) in one of the docks in the port of Aden.

Bin Lazraq said that about 130 containers with a capacity of 40 feet is loaded with “ammonium nitrate” and have been held for 3 years on the dock of the port of Aden.

Bin Lazraq added that these quantities were seized under the pretext that they are prohibited from entering the country, but they have been detained in the port for 3 years until now.

He explained that the quantity located in the port of Aden is approximately 4,900 tons.

He said: The quantity exploded in Beirut port is only 2750 tons.. this means that the quantity seized in the port of Aden is double what was stored in Beirut port, and if an explosion occurred, it would be much greater than the explosion of Beirut.

The port of Aden has been under the control of the Southern Transitional Council and the United Arab Emirates, since the city was liberated from the Houthis in 2015.
