News - Yemen: Yemen's Ministry of Fisheries strongly condemned the crime committed by international forces in the Red Sea, leading to the martyrdom of eight Yemeni fishermen from the Al-Khokha district.

In a statement, the ministry pointed out that the ordeal faced by the fishermen in Al-Khokha constitutes a heinous crime and a blatant, serious violation of international humanitarian law and human rights.

The Ministry of Fisheries emphasized that such hostile actions in Yemen's territorial waters have catastrophic effects and consequences on the fishermen, demanding that they should not be overlooked.
