US envoy: Houthis have until Feb. 16 to stop Red Sea attacks

United States Ambassador to Yemen Steven Fagin said in a post on social media on Friday that the time for Yemen’s Houthi rebels is ticking before Washington’s “terrorist group” classification comes into force.

“The designation of the Houthis as a terrorist group will take effect on February 16, but it can be reviewed if the Houthi militia ceases their activities in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden,” Fagin stated.

So far, the militant group has shown no willingness to desist in its attacks on ships passing through the Red Sea.
