SANA’A – In yet another case of constant violence being perpetrated against Yemeni civilians, on Tuesday a Saudi frigate attacked a Yemeni fishing vessel off the coast of al-Khoukha, massacring 18 fishermen.

Both the Yemeni Ministry of Public Health and the Ministry of Human Rights have condemned the crimes in strong terms, and have called on the international community to finally take a stand against the ongoing Saudi invasion of Yemen.

Saudi attacks on fishing boats are commonplace on Yemen’s west coast, as both the air force and navy of Saudi Arabia has a policy of targeting fishing vessels and often sinking them. This targeting of civilian fisherman is part of the wider Saudi coalition policy of attempting to cut off Yemen from all possible food delivery, in order to try and starve the nation into submission.

The Yemeni government has called on the Security Council to speed up the formation of an independent and impartial international commission to investigate humanitarian violations in response to the continuing attacks on civilian targets.

News agency Reuters reports that Tuesday’s attack resulted in the death of 18 fishermen during the carrying out of their job, while one of them survived.
