Taiz- “Ramadan is not the same anymore. Since the coup of Houthi and Saleh militias against the legitimate government has taken place, we no longer feel the same way about Ramadan Holy month. Instead of hearing the Ramadan cannon at the iftar, we only hear the canons of the militias all the time that daily kill and injure innocent civilians, including women and children,” this is what Taiz resident Abdullah Ahmed Abduh, an employee who works in the public sector, told Asharq Al-Awsat.

“Ramadan is about to end and the militias are still here taking revenge from Taiz residents who reject their coup and from the progress made by the army,” Abduh said.

He pointed out that people in Taiz are happy with the army’s victories and are praising them, but their hearts are broken and are suffering from a harsh humanitarian situation in light of the suspension of the salaries of the employees working in public and private sectors, who can not cheer their children in this holiday.

This comes at a time when the militias escalate their continuous shelling on the neighborhoods of Taiz using various types of weapons from the positions it has taken on the outskirts of the city to commit daily massacres.

“Three civilians were killed and six others were injured in addition to the material losses in the city due to the hysterical shelling on a neighborhood in Taiz,” military sources told Asharq Al-Awsat as they were sitting the latest crimes committed by the militias.

The son of National Army Commander Colonel Yahya al-Rimi was also killed after being hit by shrapnel from a shell fired by the militias.
