Bab al-Mandab, Yemen
17 June 2024

The U.S. designated three individuals, six entities and one vessel for having “enabled the Houthis to generate revenue and acquire a range of materials to manufacture the advanced weaponry they are now using to conduct ongoing terrorist attacks against commercial ships”. The State Department emphasised that “the Houthis’ attacks against unarmed commercial vessels continue to inhibit navigation in a vital waterway. The U.S. is committed to using the tools at our disposal to hinder the flow of military-grade materials into Yemen that enable the Houthis to conduct these terrorist attacks”.
