A member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council Mohammed Ali al-Houthi has called on the new U.S. administration to end logistical support for the Saudi Arabia-led war coalition involved in a deadly military campaign against the Yemeni people, and instead impose an arms embargo on Riyadh and its allies for the war crime.
“The U.S. should embargo the supply of weapons, as well as support flights and logistical support to Saudi Arabia and its coalition, because of their aggression against Yemen. This is worth considering until Feb. 26,” al-Houthi wrote in a post on his official Twitter page late Tuesday.
The U.S. Treasury Department announced Monday evening (Tehran time) that it had issued a one-month waiver for part of Washington’s sanctions against Yemen’s Ansarullah movement.
According to the U.S. Treasury Department, all financial transactions involving the Yemeni Ansarullah Movement or companies and organizations more than 50 percent owned by the movement, with the exception of those described in paragraph b of the exemption authorization, will be exempt from sanctions until 00:01 on February 26, 2021.
Houthi added that all Yemeni assets targeted by Washington are funds paid so that the aggressive U.S.-Saudi-Emirati coalition can continue to murder women and children and starve and destroy the country.
