”A mass transit bus was subjected to a tragic accident at dawn today, in Naqil Dhamran in the Qubaita district of Lahj governorate, on the road linking Taiz, Lahj and Aden, with 47 passengers on board due to the continued blocking of main roads by the mercenaries of the aggression,” the Authority stated in a statement on Sunday.
The statement stated that the accident resulted in the death of a number of bus passengers and the injury of others with moderate, severe and light injuries.
The statement pointed out that due to the blocking of the main roads in the southern governorates, travelers take rugged secondary roads that endanger their lives. Accidents were repeated on these roads, as a result of the continued intransigence of the Saudi-mercenaries and their insistence not to open the roads linking those governorates.
The Authority held the Saudi-mercenaries fully responsible for the accidents and the process of cutting and looting innocent travelers.
Taiz governorate has been suffering from a suffocating military siege for seven years, amid the intransigence of the forces of aggression to open roads, despite the unilateral initiatives made by Sana’a.
Sana'a has directed more than six initiatives to open the roads, but they were rejected by the Saudi-backed party.
Taiz governor stressed that the Saudi-backed side is not interested in reducing the suffering of citizens or enhancing confidence, pointing out that the bombing of roads, bridges, educational and health facilities is the direct cause of doubling the suffering of citizens.
Since the entry into effect of the UN truce on the second of last April, dozens of civilians have been killed and injured in Taiz by the fires of the Saudi-mercenaries.
Negotiations of opening roads in Jordan are without outcomes after a 2-round discussion. The National Committee says that the talks do not go beyond limited roads in Taiz.
The Saudi-backed party does not have a decision to talk about the rest of the roads and closed outlets, which is a short conception of comprehensive solutions that include closed outlets in more than one governorate, including Al-Dhalae and Marib.
President Mahdi Al-Mashat affirmed that if the military negotiating committee in Jordan does not see new signs regarding closed roads to alleviate suffering of Yemeni people, the committee will announce a unilateral initiative.
He added that the US-Saudi aggression is sparing no effort to exploit the suffering of the citizens in Taiz governorate, explaining that there is a varying agenda of the Saudi-backed government that uses the suffering and difficult conditions in Taiz and the various governorates.
In early June, the National Salvation Government announced the implementation of a unilateral initiative, to raise the earthen barriers in preparation for the opening of a road inside the city of Taiz.
The Chairman of National Military Committee Yahya Abdullah Al-Razami has called on the representatives of the United Nations to go with the Committee to Taiz Governorate and examine the reality to prove the seriousness of the National side to know the party obstructing the opening of humanitarian outlets.
He reiterated the National side's keenness to alleviate the suffering of the people of Taiz and all the people of the country, and affirm that the ball is in the court of the Saudi-backed side.
Razami considered that the Saudi-backed side must realize the humanitarian responsibility towards the Yemeni people, who are still suffering from an unjust and brutal siege and aggression.
He has confirmed that the Saudi-backed government is trying to make the issue of roads a subject for political and propaganda exploitation and rejects practical initiatives that would contribute to alleviating the suffering of citizens in Taiz and the other governorates.
