The US State Department said that the Houthi militia is prolonging the war in Yemen and is responsible for the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, noting that Washington is communicating with its regional partners to hold it accountable.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken stressed that Washington is committed to helping Saudi Arabia and the UAE confront the Houthi attacks.
He added, in a tweet to him on “Twitter”, that there is US-Gulf coordination to target the Houthi terrorist financing network.
He added that the US Treasury decided to impose sanctions on members of an international network that funds the putschists and threatens the region, civilians and infrastructure.
The US minister also pointed out that the decision to impose sanctions on this international network that funds the Houthi militia came in coordination with Washington’s partners in the Gulf.
In turn, the US State Department stressed that it has tools to hold the Houthis accountable for terrorist attacks against civilians, stressing that the militia is responsible for the largest humanitarian disaster in the world.
This came after the US Treasury announced, on Wednesday, the imposition of sanctions on members of an international network run by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and which funds the Houthi militia against the Yemeni government.
And it said in a statement, that the ministry’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has placed on its sanctions list members of an international network that funds the Houthis against the Yemeni government and the increasingly aggressive attacks that threaten civilians and civilian infrastructure in neighboring countries.
He added that it had transferred tens of millions of dollars to Yemen through a complex international network of intermediaries to support Houthi attacks, led by the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards.
He also announced that actions are being taken today in close coordination and cooperation with regional Gulf partners.
The statement further made it clear that the United States continues to work with its regional allies to act decisively against those who seek to prolong this war for their own ambitions. Houthi leaders must stop their violent campaign and negotiate in good faith to end the conflict.
