Indian sailors in Yemen: Indian sailors rescued from Yemen have thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for returning home safely. The Houthi rebels are in control of the area in Yemen where the Indian nationals were rescued. Yemen’s Houthi rebels seize a UAE merchant ship in the Red Sea on January 2. At that time 8 Indians and foreigners were taken prisoner.
The foreign ministry said Indian sailors had been rescued from Huthi rebels on Sunday. The men arrived in India from Sanaa, the capital of Yemen. That is why Mohammad Munawar Sameer Sheikh, who came out of the rebel captivity, said, “We have been stuck there for the last three and a half months.” The Government of India, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian Embassy have released us. We sincerely thank you for this.
The Indian rebels knowingly behaved well
Mohammad Jashim Khan, a second sailor from Lucknow, said the situation in Yemen had worsened, with rebels seeking to seize our ships and cargo. When they found out that we were Indians, they treated us well. Another rescued sailor said, “We were able to return to the country only because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.” The Indian government also thanked the Yemeni government. The Indian government says it is grateful to all parties involved for raising concerns about the Indian sailors, especially the Yemeni government.
