Today, Tuesday, the US State Department confirmed that it will continue to pressure the Houthis to prevent them from destabilizing the region.
“We will continue to pressure the Houthis to prevent them from destabilizing Yemen,” the US State Department spokeswoman, Geraldine Griffiths, said in statements to Al Arabiya, stressing that Washington “will not hesitate to impose more sanctions on the Houthis.”
“We will continue to pressure the Houthi militia to stop their destabilizing practices in the region,” she added.
Griffiths said, “Iranian interference in Yemen and other countries exacerbates crises in the region,” noting that “the United States is conducting consultations with its allies in the region and the international community to curb Iran’s destabilizing practices.”
Earlier in the day, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions on the Houthi leaders, Mansour Al-Saadi and Ahmed Al-Hamzi, in the Houthi terrorist militia, against the background of the recent Houthi attacks on civilian targets in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“The Iranian Revolutionary Guard is training and directing the Houthi militia to attack Saudi Arabia and threaten Yemen’s neighborhood,” the US Treasury said in a statement, adding that “the Iranian regime is fueling the conflict in Yemen by providing financial aid and weapons to the Houthi militia.”
