Government forces reopen Taiz's only port  after closure by gunmen


Government troops on Wednesday reopened the only port of Taiz besieged by the Houthis since August 2015, after it was closed by militants affiliated with the popular Resistance.

According to al-Masdar online, the closure of the Al-Dhbab outlet southwest of the city since Tuesday caused congestion and vehicles and prevented civilians from entering and exiting the city.

The Taiz police Department said it reopened the Al-Dhbab road this morning after a security campaign was carried out in the area to track down the militants.

According to the police, the campaign is "in the direction of preventing any actions that would provoke chaos and increase the suffering of citizens and damage to them and their property."

Armed gangs used to cut off the Al-Dhabab road, the only port in Taiz in the past period to pressure the local authority to carry out demands.
