The Biden administration designated the Iranian-backed Houthis as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist group, reversing their 2021 decision to remove the group from the Foreign Terrorist Organization list.

This move follows the Houthis’ attacks on commercial vessels in the Red Sea.

The administration emphasized that the designation should not affect Yemeni civilians and announced measures to facilitate humanitarian aid and critical imports.

The U.S. State Department said, “This designation seeks to promote accountability for the group’s terrorist activities.”

“If the Houthis cease their attacks in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, the United States will reevaluate this designation,” the agency continued.

“The U.S. government will conduct robust outreach to stakeholders, aid providers, and partners who are crucial to facilitating humanitarian assistance and the commercial import of critical commodities in Yemen,” declared the Sate Department.

They State Department added, “The Department of the Treasury is also publishing licenses authorizing certain transactions related to the provision of food, medicine, and fuel, as well as personal remittances, telecommunications and mail, and port and airport operations on which the Yemeni people rely.”

Although the administration refrained from re-designating the Houthis as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, the move carries significant implications for U.S. entities providing support to the group.
