Moskowitz Requests Re-Designation of the Yemeni Houthis as a Foreign Terrorist Organization

Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday, Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) and Congressman Mike Waltz (R-Florida) led a bipartisan letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken requesting the State Department re-designate the Iran-backed Yemeni Houthis as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

Since their delisting, the Houthis have continued to commit terrorist attacks. Most recently, Houthi spokesman Yahya Saree stated that the organization has conducted three attacks on Israel since the war started, including launching a “large number” of missiles and drones at Israel. This letter urges Secretary Blinken to promptly re-designate the Houthis as an FTO.

Moskowitz and Waltz were joined by 47 other members of the House.
