Military checkpoint affiliated with 33 Brigade allowed the passage of the vehicles of smugglers and not of the security men.
The checkpoint, located on the asphalt road connecting Taiz and the coastal city Mocca, permited the passing through of vehicles belonging to the security forces only after obtaining permission from the military commander of the region. This flagrant interference has led to a feeling of discontent and dissatisfaction among the security forces.
