  1. Houthis honor no deals. But they may be serious in prisoner exchange with the government this time. They never care about their Zanabeel (tribal supporters not members of the “supreme” Houthi clan) with the government. But they need them badly. They have a severe deficiency of fighters on the ground, says Saeed Abdullah on his Facebook page.
