The Houthi militias have been detaining a French sailor for two weeks after his boat had to dock at the Hodeidah Port, west of Yemen, due to a technical malfunction.
The Yemen Red Sea Ports Corporation which manages the Hodeidah Port said in a statement on June 3 that a French sailor on his sailing boat Jehol 2 arrived to the Hodeidah Port after a sea storm, adding that they supplied the sailor with water so he can resume his journey which destination is Djibouti Port.
However, high-ranking Houthi commander Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, the head of the so-called revolutionary committee, said on Twitter on Saturday night that the “coastguard” affiliated with the militias detained a French foreign sailboat called M/Y_jehol_11. This is the same sailboat that reached the Hodeidah Port at the beginning of June.
