Sanaa condemns coalition assaults on Yemeni fishermen in Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden

SANAA, June 08 (YPA) – The Ministry of Fisheries in Sanaa on Thursday condemned the aggressive campaign launched by the Saudi-led coalition forces against fishermen and the dredging of fish wealth using internationally prohibited tools on the coasts of the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

The ministry called, in a statement issued today, on the free people of the southern provinces to stand together to expel “the occupation forces” and protect the territorial waters from interference and attacks that harm fishing and fishermen.

It also called on the United Nations and the international community to intervene to stop this aggression against fish wealth and aquatic life, hold the perpetrators of these crimes accountable, and compensate the fishermen and the affected families.

The statement stressed that the Yemeni people would not give up their rights and wealth and would defend them despite the continued aggression and siege.
