The Director General of the Ports and Landing Center, Aziz Al-Atini, and the Deputy Director-General of the General Authority for Fisheries, Muhammad Al-Omeisy, stated that 23 fishermen were received while their boat and fishing equipment were confiscated.
Al-Atini and Al-Omeisy renewed their condemnation and denunciation of the repetition of such violations and criminal practices carried out by the US-Saudi aggression and its pirates against fishermen, including kidnapping, physical attacks, confiscation of their boats, and not allowing them to practice the fishing profession in Yemen’s territorial waters.
They stressed that the acts of piracy committed against fishermen in the Red Sea are among the war crimes against Yemen in light of a shameful international silence, calling on the United Nations and the relevant organizations to take a responsible stance towards these violations and to protect the fishermen.
Fisheries constitute one of the pillars of economic development in Yemen due to its renewable resources that contribute to the sustainability of the gross domestic product. It provides job opportunities for thousands of Yemenis, in addition to the productive and service activities related to this vital and strategic sector, which generates revenues to support the economic and social development in Yemen.
The countries involved in the aggression deliberately target the fish and marine sector in Yemen as part of their tendencies to extend and control Yemen's ports and islands and control its coasts and beaches.
The targeting methods consisted of bombing fishing boats and fishing landing centers, in addition to confiscating boats in the coastal areas that they controlled. They prevent the practice of fishing in many areas designated for years for fishing, in addition to dredging, looting and tampering with marine resources.
