Taiz Bureau
Fire exchange between Taha Ali and his sons, on one side, and Abdu Sa'eed Moqbil on the other, took place in Sabir Mountain in Taiz on Friday 9th September. The bloody clash between the two parties resulted in the death of a 40-year-old Taha Ali with two bullets lodged in his head. Fire was opened over a land dispute between the two sides. It is noteworthy that rises in the price of land in the city of Taiz and its suburbs, including Sabir, has led to an increase in land ownership disputes. Such cases are exacerbated by the absence of quick judicial settlements.
