Mareb Governorate's population faced hours of fear and worry after a trailer full of gas turned up side down, at the entrance to the town, with the gas leaking from one of the turns.
Sources advised that had the trailer exploded, it would have destroyed the entire town.
Many residents have expressed their worry at the increasing risk of environmental damage caused by accidents and the pollution of the Petroleum carrier wagon and the Refinery in Mareb, which does not take measures towards environmental protection in the Governorate.
