On Thursday, Yemeni citizens found the bodies of 7 fishermen, from the Al-Mokha district, Taiz governorate, off the coast of the city of Hodeidah, three days after they went missing with their boat in Yemeni territorial waters.
And media sources stated that six bodies were found floating off the coast of Al-Kathib area in Al-Hodeidah, and that they belong to the missing fishermen, all of whom are from the Al-Mokha district.
It added that the body of the seventh fisherman was found on their overturned boat, tied with ropes, 20 nautical miles in the Al-Ari area from the fishing port in Hodeidah.
According to the sources, the body of one of the missing fishermen was towed with the boat to the fishing port in Hodeidah, while arrangements will be made to return the bodies of the fishermen to their hometowns.
It is believed that the strong winds caused the boat to capsize, which was declared missing a few days ago in the Al-Mokha district, and efforts to search for them failed.
Local sources reported that the fishermen are: Hail Ghafari, Moatasem Hamid, Ali Talib, Muhammad Ibrahim Buhairi, Faisal Buhairi, Hudhaifa Buhairi, and Abdu Baqar.
Incidents of fishermen's boats losing and drowning in the territorial waters of the Red Sea have been repeated, either as a result of the explosion of sea mines planted by the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia, or their drowning due to strong winds and high waves during the past years, which resulted in dozens of deaths.
