Five fishermen missing near Yemeni west coast

At least five Yemeni fishermen went missing on Friday while on a fishing trip off the coast of the port city of Mocha, west of Taiz province.

Colleagues of the disappeared said that the five fishermen had left for sea and had not returned, adding that they had begun a search operation.

They Yemeni fishermen accused the UAE-backed Joint Forces Coast Guard of disregarding the incident despite appeals for help.

“The state of the sea, the raging and the strong winds that the region is experiencing these days make fishing dangerous,” they said.
