Successful prisoner exchange deal between Sana’a and Marib is an indicator of imminent detente
A local agreement to swap 52 bodies between the Al-Islah Authority in the city of Marib and the government of Sana’a has been successful.
According to media reports, the mediation was carried out by a local organization called “Protection” that specializes in the matters of war prisoners.
According to reports, there will soon be visits between the prisons in Sana’a and Marib under the Geneva prisoner exchange agreement. Observers saw this action as a sign of “an imminent detente in the prisoners’ file,” opening the door for the second round of negotiations, which is anticipated to result in the release of 1,500 prisoner from both sides.
