 The mediation committee in Abyan governorate said that the conflicting parties have agreed to extend the ceasefire which is due to end on Tuesday.

The head of the mediation committee, Sheikh Faisal Al-Marqashi revealed that efforts are being exerted to reopen the roads for a specific period in the day as negotiation for the exchange of prisoners continues under tribal auspices.

Al-Marqashi said that the committee aims to encourage the conflicting parties in Abyan for a resumption of peaceful dialogue and then the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement.

It's worth mentioning that the truce in Abyan went into effect last Sunday on Eid al-Fitr, a few hours after the killing of a number of senior military commanders of the pro-government Muslim Brotherhood's militias, including the commander of the 153rd Infantry Brigade, Colonel Mohammed Saleh Al-Aqili.
