Yemen’s Fisheries Wealth Minister Fahd Kafain said on Tuesday that Iranian ships are harassing and threatening fishermen in Yemen’s territorial waters.

Kafain called on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities in stopping Iran's blatant excesses and stopping its intervention in Yemeni affairs through its support for the Houthi militia.

He added that the Houthi militia is carrying out arbitrary operations against Yemeni fishermen, by kidnapping them and preventing them from practicing their profession, with clear Iranian support.
