The cabinet on Tuesday ordered Ministries of Defense and Interior to immediately act, via a comprehensive military and security plan, to protect oil pipelines and transmission towers.
It also directed the ministries to instantly capture the outlaws involved in such sabotage acts, which it described as "criminal offenses", which will be dealt with decisively strictly to encounter those saboteurs and put an end to their serious crimes against the country and people.
The cabinet's orders came in its weekly meeting chaired by Prime Minister Mohammed Salem Basindwa and dedicated to address the repeated sabotage attacks on oil pipelines and electricity lines in some areas of Marib governorate.
It authorized the Prime Minister, the Attorney General and the Ministers of Defense and Interior to take the required executive measures to control the security situation in the governorate and impose the prestige of the State.
The cabinet said that such sabotage acts aimed to hinder the government from carrying out its tasks and the requirements of the current transitional stage and from achieving the aspirations of the Yemeni people of change, decent live and social justice.
