Disputes erupt between Yemeni fishermen and UAE occupation in Socotra

Disputes erupted on Thursday between Yemeni fishermen and representative of the UAE occupation forces, Khalfan Al-Mazrouei, on the occupied Socotra island.

Local sources on the island confirmed that Al-Mazrouei has been refusing to pay fishermen their dues for the value of fish since the beginning of the establishment of a UAE factory for fish canning on the island.

According to the sources, the UAE is forcing Yemeni fishermen to hand over fish to the Prime factory, which in turn carries out packaging and exports to Abu Dhabi.
