Israeli, Eritrean navies kidnap 10 Yemeni fishermen off Taiz coast

TAIZ, March 25 (YPA) – Israeli and Eritrean naval boats attacked on Sunday a number of Yemeni fishing boats in the territorial waters, arresting 10 fishermen along with three boats off Mocha coast of Taiz province, according to local sources.

Among the kidnapped fishermen there were three of one family, which one of its members along with another fisherman were shot dead by Eritrean navy fire in 2014, and all of them are from residents of Mocha district and Yakhtal area.

Emergency forces of the so-called legitimacy government backed by Saudi-led coalition forces did not pay any attention to the matter, despite families of the kidnapped fishermen reported to them about the accident.
