The head of the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs has expressed his regret about the intransigence and obstructions by the US-Saudi aggression in the way of any breakthrough in prisoner exchange.
Abdulqadir Al-Murtadha said “we had hoped that the month of Ramadan would bring a breakthrough in the prisoner exchange, and we had made many initiatives, but unfortunately the intransigence and obstructions put by the mercenaries prevented that.”
كنّا نأمل ان يشهد شهر رمضان المبارك إنفراجة في ملف الاسرى’ وقدمنا العديد من المقترحات والمبادرات والعروض لاجل ذالك
ولكن للاسف تعنت وعرقلة مرتزقة العدوان حال دون ذالك.
وعلى الامم المتحدة الضغط عليهم للوفاء بالتزاماتهم والكف عن هذا التعنت والعرقلة.

He added that “the United Nations should put pressure on the countries of aggression and their mercenaries, to force them to fulfill their obligations and stop this intransigence and obstructions.”
Earlier, the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs submitted a new prisoner exchange offer to the US-Saudi aggression through the United Nations.
“Due to the delay in the implementation of the prisoner exchange agreement, we submitted a new offer to the Saudi-led aggression through the United Nations,” the head of the Prisoners’ Committee, Abdulqadir Al-Mortadha said .
Al-Murtadha explained that the offer made to the United Nations stipulates the release of 200 prisoners from each party before the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which will take place on Monday.
He considered this offer “a positive prologue to the full implementation of the agreement” and said that the committee is waiting for the response of the countries of aggression, which he hopes will be positive.
