Nine Yemeni soldiers freed in prisoner swap deal

The head of the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs, Abdul Qadir al-Murtadha, has revealed on Friday that nine Yemeni prisoners have been freed in a prisoner exchange won through local mediation in Ma’rib.

“Nine prisoners of the army and the Popular Committees were freed today in a prisoner swap achieved through local mediation at the Ma’rib front,” al-Murtadha said on his Twitter account.

Last week, al-Murtadha revealed that the Committee was able to free five prisoners of the army and Popular Committees in an exchange through a local mediator in the same front.
