The Ministry of Fisheries condemned the developments in preparation for the construction to be military warehouses or logistical buildings, on Abd al-Kuri Island in the Socotra Archipelago by the countries of the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression coalition.
The Ministry of Fisheries explained that the new satellite images showed that there were developments affecting the new main aircraft refinery, and the paving of an area next to it, in preparation for the construction of what is likely to be military warehouses or logistical buildings, and the establishment of workers areas and modern buildings east of the base on occupied Abd al-Kuri Island.
It indicated in a statement on Friday, that the US-Saudi aggression countries not only occupied some of Yemen's islands, its beaches and important parts of its lands, plundering its wealth and destroying its environment of all kinds, but rather it displaced the people of Abd al-Kuri Island, which is one of the most important islands. Socotra Archipelago.
The statement also pointed out that the countries of aggression went too far during the past week to send new Emirati forces to Hadibu Airport, in preparation for transferring them to Abd al-Kuri Island.
The Ministry of Fisheries denounced such actions by the occupying countries jointly with the Zionist enemy in the archipelago and the strategic Yemeni islands, calling to stop them and for the exit of those troops from Abd al-Kuri Island and all Yemeni lands, islands and coasts.
It held the UN Security Council, the United Nations, and its humanitarian and human rights organizations responsible for their silence over the infringement of Yemeni sovereignty on a number of islands, the latest of which is what is happening on Abd al-Kuri Island.
Recently, HuffPost has reported that the Emiratis have already consolidated control over Al-Mahra’s neighboring region of Socotra with sizable facilities that suggest they are unlikely to ever relinquish control. “Even if they claim they’re not, they are conducting themselves in a way that any normal country with a functioning government would say, ‘You’re violating our sovereignty,’” the congressional aide said.
Earlier, Yemen's Minister of Defense, Major General Mohammad Al-Atifi, confirmed that the maritime security of Yemens' territorial waters will be a priority in the next stage.
The Minister of Defense said, "The Bab Al-Mandab Strait, the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea, the territorial extension of the Socotra archipelago, and the Yemeni islands are Yemeni lands over which we have full sovereignty."
He explained that the Armed Forces have taken all measures to ensure that they deal forcefully and firmly with any development that poses a threat or prejudice to national sovereignty and maritime sovereignty.
Major General Al-Atifi warned, "We have options for which no one will blame us if we resort to them, because we have provided all means to reach a positive end, but the enemy refuses."
He continued, "We are witnessing today hostile, conspiratorial, and sabotage actions and siege are sure testimony that aggression does not want to establish any form of peace, and does not have any real willingness to think positively about stability and peace in the region and respect the will of Yemeni people."
