Security forces in Radfan, on Monday, managed to intercept a shipment of weapons coming from Sanaa en route to Aden.
A security checkpoint stopped a small transport bus carrying passengers as camouflage, while small boxes were placed under the passengers’ back seats.
When the bus was searched, it turned out that it was full of weapons equipped with magnifying lenses, in addition to many types of pistols and grenade launchers.
The detainees were put in jail for interrogation and to take the necessary action against them.
Brig. Gen. Mukhtar Nubi, commander of the fifth brigade at Radfan Belt, said that the process came as a result of careful inspection by the security forces of all the locations scattered in Radfan.
