U.S. To Designate Houthi Rebels As Foreign Terrorist Organization

SECRETARY OF STATE POMPEO ANNOUNCE HOUTHIS AS TERRORISTS

(CNN) – The U.S. State Department is set to designate the Houthis, also referred to as Ansarallah as a foreign terrorist organization.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he also plans to designate three leaders of the organization as specially designated global terrorists.

These designations will bring more tools to confront terroristic actions by the Iran-supported militia organization in the Gulf region.

They will also boost efforts to bring peace to Yemen that is free from Iranian interference.
