YEMEN: HOUTHIS RELEASE 350 PRISONERS INCLUDING 3 SAUDIS

This is the most significant of a string of cross-border raids carried out by the Houthis, although Saudi Arabia has yet to confirm the attack.

The Houthi’s Committee for Prisoners Affairs (NCPA) said: “We have presented to the United Nations a unilateral initiative to release 350 prisoners and detainees from the other party who were included in the Stockholm agreement statements,”

Abdul Qader Al-Murtada, head of the NCPA, explained that among the released prisoners are all the inmates who survived from the Saudi air strikes on Dhamar prison earlier this month, which killed over 100 non-combatants.

Speaking at a press conference on the Najran operation over the weekend, Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Saree stated that the group had “liberated” 350 kilometres square of territory in Najran. Likely in reference to the fact that historically, Najran was part of Yemen but was annexed by the Saudis following the Saudi-Yemeni war of 1934. Video evidence of the operation, dubbed “Victory from God” was also released yesterday, it has not been independently verified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these claims are independently verified, this may well be a turning point in the Saudi war against Yemen; if not, expect to see a carpet bombing of Yemen, the likes of which humankind has not seen, since the World War II carpet bombing attacks.
