Shabwa governor: presidential directives to start operating port of Al Majdahah
عدن نيوز – AdenNews :

The Governor of Shabwah, Muhammad bin Adiou, announced presidential directives to approve the operation of the port of “Al Majdahah” in the Radhum district, and instructed the competent authorities to initiate the necessary arrangements for its operation, according to what was reported by the Yemeni news agency “Saba”.

The port of “Al Majdahah”, which is known historically as the port of “Qana”, is located on the coast of the Arabian Sea near the port and facility of Balhaf for the liquefaction and export of gas, and it is about 140 km from the city of Ataq.

A government source said that the “Majdahah” port would now be used officially to import oil derivatives as a start and then as a commercial port.

The operation of the port constitutes a prominent victory for the Yemeni government in its struggle to recover the activities of Yemeni ports, over the UAE whitch has been able to extend its control over Yemen’s ports since its participation in the war in 2015.
