Government: Houthis released only 290 detainees

Alsahwa Net- The government refuted on Wednesday Houthis- circulated news that the latter released 350 detainees.

Hadi Haij, chief of the government-detainees committee said that the Houthis released only 290 detainees and this number was confirmed by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). 

He explained that the Houthis announced earlier that they will release 350 detainees, but they later reversed their pledge.

He indicated that the government and the Saudi-led coalition released earlier 110 child soldiers who were arrested by the government forces while they were fighting for the Houthis’ side.

“These war prisoners [110 child soldiers] were handed to their families via the ICRC with no fuss,” said Haij.

He indicated that the recently released detainees from the Houthis-run prisons were abducted from home.

He added that the government remains committed to the Stockholm agreement which states release of all detainees in exchange of all war-prisoners.
