A leader in the houthi groupe (Ansar Allah) said in statement  that the parties to the conflict in Yemen signed on Thursday an agreement to hand over all bodies of the two parties during talks in Amman, Jordan on the implementation of the prisoner detainees swap agreement.

Hamd Abu al-Ahmar, head of the bodies committee of the Houthi group told RT (TV network) that his group and the   representatives of the Yemen's internationally recognized government  have reached an agreement that the two sides will swap all their bodies,".

The meeting, which began in Amman on Thursday, is due to conclude by the supervisory committee to follow up the implementation of the prisoner swap agreement, which includes representatives from both sides of the conflict in Yemen, the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The Committee held its first meeting in Amman on the 17th and 18th of last January and adopted new timetabled steps to sustain progress in the swap of more than 16,000 prisoners.

The Yemeni warring parties have traded blames for hindering the deal that would have seen more than 16,000 prisoners exchanged by the end of last January.

Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iran-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally recognized government late in 2014.

The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi, leaving tens of thousands killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and 3 million displaced and pushing the country to the world's worst humanitarian crisis, according to the UN, with more than two thirds of the 28-million population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 8.4 million people unsure how to get next meal, and some 2 million children suffering severe shortage of nutrition.
