The UAE Lands 400 Mercenaries in Socotra in Yemen


International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU)  has received confirmed reports from local residents and activists on the island of Socotra in Yemen that the UAE has landed more than 400 mercenaries in uniforms of the UAE army.


The reports said that the mercenaries were distributed in the form of groups one of them stationed in the port of the island while the second group set up two checkpoints on one of the main roads on the island, which quickly disappeared after a protest from the people.


ICBU condemned the irresponsible conduct of the UAE, which is dedicated to the occupation force on the island. The campaign called on the international community to act immediately and to end the madness of Abu Dhabi, which has become an issue without borders.


The campaign also condemned the continuation of the UAE’s policies by using mercenaries from Latin America and Asian countries to fight in its wars in the Middle East, especially Yemen. At the same time, the campaign appealed to the Yemeni people for the peaceful response of the UAE occupation of the island and the rest of the Yemeni soil.


The campaign also called on the United States to impose sanctions on the UAE because of its behaviour in Yemen, which does not contribute to the liberation of the country, but the occupation of Yemen and the theft of his capabilities.


In the same context, the campaign expressed its deep indignation over the UAE’s continued theft of the rare Socotra trees and plants which have been protected under the World Heritage Organization since 2008. Abu Dhabi is destroying the island, which is a great treasure for the history of mankind.

ICBU aims to isolate the UAE economically and politically because of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, as well as the war crimes in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights. The UAE is a centre of modern slavery and today it is one of the leading countries in the field of human trafficking. Supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
