The Transitional Council militia did not content with granting permits and licenses to the Burum Fish Company to fish in the coastal waters of Socotra and tightening the noose on more than 7,000 fishermen from Socotra, which doubles their suffering, and they support thousands of Socotra families.

Emirati forces are planning to occupy Dersa Island, which is one of the most important fishing sites for rich fish and coral reefs.

Ships have become unidentified that UAE allows them to shovel fish in large quantities, with silence more than 20 fish societies on island without even issuing a single statement defending rights of Socotra fishermen.


Military Disembarkations

On March 8th , the UAE carried out military disembarkations, as it assigned former Socotra Security Director Ahmed Issa, to supervise process of registering 500 people from transitional, to be transported by Emirati aircraft from governorate to Abu Dhabi.

Socotra residents see what UAE is doing is tantamount to pulling rug from under government and fighting it, wiping out everything related to Yemen, or linking Socotra to its geography, identity, customs and Yemeni traditions.

UAE sent thousands of young men to the Emirates and gave them attractive sums. It also recruits girls and sends others to study abroad, and seeks to control them all to serve its agenda.

 and local authorities and a clear attempt to obstruct the implementation of Riyadh Agreement.”

The UAE continues to support armed groups and STC militia and encourage chaos in archipelago. “

There is clear and continuous push to deepen crisis, obstruct all solutions, confiscate identity and sovereignty, which we have not and will not allow in any way.

legitimacy leadership has not done what is necessary to work to normalize the situation in archipelago and expel STC militia despite continuous calls for government to resolve crisis in Socotra and restore Pro-Saudi Aggression Government authorities.

Director General of Socotra Port, Riyadh Suleiman, revealed military vehicles unloaded by an Emirati ship that arrived at the port.

Abu Dhabi seeks, by introducing weapons and bypassing sovereignty of Yemeni state, to obstruct Riyadh Agreement.

Foreign delegations arrive in governorate without any controls, with Emirati sponsorship and direct protection from STC militia, indicating that there are suspicions that UAE has introduced an Israeli delegation to archipelago.

Khalfan promised officials and heads of fish societies to own cars, provided they cooperate with him in completing the deal of selling cracks with approaching fishing season, and limiting sale to Emirati factory as an entity that benefits from Socotra fishing, in amounts exceeding tens of millions of dollars.

The granting of cars also came after escalation of disputes between fishermen and Emirati delegate over the refusal of Abu Dhabi delegates to pay fish tax.
