Residents of Taiz, Yemen's third largest city, held a sit-in in front of the headquarters of the Special Security Forces, a state security agency that recently fell into the arms of Houthi militants, to protest the takeover of their city by said rebels. Security forces loyal to the Houthi rebels dispersed the protesters with tear gas bombs and by firing live bullets into the air.

According to local residents, Houthi Shiite rebels took over the military airport and several neighborhoods in the city on 22 March.
