Houthis accuse coalition of kidnapping 150 fishermen from the Red Sea coast


The al-Houthi group on Wednesday accused the Saudi-led Arab coalition of abducting more than 150 fishermen from the Red Sea coast of western Yemen.

The Houthi al-Masirah channel said that what it called "forces of aggression " abducted more than 150 fishermen aboard 15 boats, while hunting near al-Tarfa Island in Hodeidah Governorate.

The two sides are exchanging accusations of harming fishermen on the shores of the province of Hodeidah, whose inhabitants are living in a difficult humanitarian situation, especially since the fighting entered the province late last year.

An agreement was reached between the parties during the Stockholm consultations last December, ending the fighting and repositioning the forces of the two teams, but the agreement that was supposed to be completed within a month has yet to be implemented, amid recriminations between the two sides.
