Yemen: Houthis and prisoner exchange

Leader of the Yemeni Houthi rebels Abdulamalik Al-Houthi offered last week to release one of the two captured Saudi pilots along with four other Saudi officers and soldiers.

In exchange, he demanded that Palestinian supporters be released from Saudi prisons.

Several mediators are said to have attempted to include both Saudi pilots in the prisoner exchange rather than one pilot only.

Did Al-Houthi agree?

How did the Saudis react to the Houthi proposal?

Is there any Saudi counter-proposal?

Tactical Report answers these questions and more in the following 428-word report.
