Taiz, NewsYemen, special:

The Iranian-backed terrorist militia continued to build a dirt road northwest of Taiz for the third consecutive day, apparently in implementation of its promises to open alternative roads and crossings towards the liberated areas in the city of Taiz, the provincial capital.

The sources considered that road as a new ploy and a circumvention by the Houthis to the demands of the government delegation and all the people of Taiz behind them to open the main roads and end the suffering of civilians and an ugly scenario to show the dress of humanity that they abused during the seven years of siege.

The Houthis decided to build a rugged and distant road starting from the Sixty Road and then the fifty, and through the villages near the air defense camp, all the way to Al-Arbaeen Street, north of the city of Taiz. Its goal is the air defense and Jabal Jarrah, the strategists.

Informed sources in Taiz revealed to NewsYemen that the Houthi goal of building the "Sixty-Fifty" road is to reach the "air defense camp" in the vicinity of the old airport northwest of the city, which it has failed in recent years to reach militarily.

The sources stated that the militias are rushing to build the dirt road and are working around the clock, in order to complete the building, despite it passing through agricultural lands, dust and lands planned for housing belonging to simple civilians, which were confiscated in favor of the "military road".

She pointed out that the digging operation is accompanied by the deployment of armed elements and Houthi combat mechanisms in the surrounding areas, including snipers, artillery, and various bullets, which confirms that the goal of opening the road is not in implementation of what was stipulated in the international armistice that was extended Thursday for a second period, but rather its goal is to "reach  To the “Air Defense Camp” of the Taiz Axis forces, which is controlled by members of the Islah party, which did nothing to prevent this conspiracy.

Yesterday evening, the militias bombed the Al-Hasab area from the areas of their concentration in the "Al-Farea" hill overlooking the new road.

And local sources in Taiz indicated that the new road links the 60th and 50th Streets, and passes through areas close to the air defense camp in the old airport, Al-Nour City, Al-Bararah areas, Street 24 and Al-Zanqal Market, and from there to the city center.

The sources stated that the road’s passage scheme actually aims to reach the air defense camp, and areas of important military strategic importance northwest of the city, which the militias have been unable to reach in recent years, and it paves the way for the passage of Houthi military equipment towards the liberated areas under the armistice.

The new road does not constitute any importance for the passage of vehicles loaded with goods or for travelers, as it passes through areas with mines, overlooked by Houthi sites from the northeastern side, and is threatened by torrential rains, as it is a "soft" area that cannot be crossed during the rains.

Many military observers in Taiz say that the militias, without prior warning and far from Jordan’s consultations, began with the directions of Major General Al-Razami to build a side road that no one expected, passing from sixty to fifty and from there to the bottom of the air defense camp and then nour city. 

They pointed out that a number of bus drivers were informed that the road would be available for traffic despite the lack of coordination with any party to crammed travelers into a closed road planted with mines and then announced that the legitimate government refused to open the roads, in a black farce.

The militia members, with their weapons and snipers, overlook all the areas through which the new road passes and from various sides, and they control a ruling door overlooking the road, so that everyone who takes it is under their eyes and within the range of their weapons.

Civilians who have been crushed by the war live in the areas that pass through the road, and Houthi snipers and elements have made them lose many loved ones, family and sons, but they did not leave their villages because there is no refuge for them except their homes and life is at the mercy of Houthi snipers.

The militias had agreed to open the "Ghorab" port, which passes from the Sharaab Junction on the Sittin, north of the city, in the vicinity of the ghee and soap factory and the old airport area, all the way to the Bir Pasha area, and from there to the city from the northern side, but they repudiated that at the request of the head of their delegation, the negotiator Al-Razami.  .

The militias intended that the new road would pass next to the "Ghorab" school and the "Al-Rakb" area, which are areas that the militias have turned into barracks and sites for their armed elements.
