Local tribes in Yemen's Marib city denied their involvement in closing roads and seizing fuel trucks while holding the government responsible for fuel shortages.
The tribes said in a press release the authorities should find out the real reasons for the fuel crisis and expose those who have caused it.
"We have followed media reports linking us to the crisis and, in response, we affirm no road has been closed in any part of Marib and that fuel trucks pass safely with our protection," the tribes said.
"We care about public properties and will help the authorities when needed to protect key installations in Marib," they said in the statement.
Moreover, they reiterated their commitment to preventing conflicts and any acts that aim to destabilize their city.
In recent, some Yemeni cities including the capital city of Sanaa have started to experience petrol, diesel and gas shortages but the government has not commented.
Moreover, they called on the parliamentary committee which sponsored a deal on peace in Marib to expose the parties violating the deal and provide a public access to the deal terms.
Maybe, they referred to the deal on protecting public infrastructure and interests in return for preventing the Houthi Group's takeover of the oil-rich Marib.
