A source from Yemen’s national delegation told Al-Manar that the opening session of the consultations aimed at ending the country’s crisis struck a deal to swap the hostages of both sides.
It is worth noting that most of the hostages captured by the Yemeni army and popular committees are Saudi or Emirati.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led Coalition, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
