The U.S. sanctioned “members of an international network funding the Huthis’ war against the Yemeni government and increasingly aggressive attacks threatening civilians and civilian infrastructure in neighbouring states”.  According to the Treasury Department, the network was “led by the U.S.-designated Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force (IRGC-QF) and [a] Houthi financier”. Secretary of State Antony Blinken underscored that the U.S. would “continue to work closely with our regional partners to act decisively against those seeking to prolong this war for their own goals… Huthi leaders must cease their campaign of violence and negotiate in good faith without preconditions to end the conflict”.
