17 lawmakers urge Biden to reinstatement of Houthi terrorist designation

The lawmakers, led by Reps. Mike Waltz (R-FL) and Seth Moulton (D-MA) emphasized that there had been a significant uptick in attacks on U.S. partners and forces in Gulf states since the U.S. withdrew the FTO designation and that the humanitarian aims have been unsuccessful.

Removal of the designation has done little’ to improve the humanitarian situation in Yemen and only embolden the Houthis to escalate their attacks and block reconciliation efforts in the country.

The lawmakers also claimed that the Houthis had diverted aid meant for the Yemeni people.
