The U.S. Department of the Treasury imposed sanctions on four military leaders of the Terrorist Houthi militias simultaneously with similar measures taken by Britain against the same persons.

The Ministry stated that the sanctions target the following: The so-called Mohamed al-Atifi, Mohammad Fadl Abd al-Nabi, Mohammad Ali al-Qadiri and Mohammad Ahmad al-Talibi.

It noted that today’s action targets the four individuals who have supported the Houthis’ recent attacks against commercial vessels in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, including holding civilian crews hostage. Concurrent with the designation of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the United Kingdom is also imposing sanctions on these key figures of Houthi forces.

The Treasury’s statement added” The Houthis’ persistent terrorist attacks on merchant vessels and their civilian crews lawfully transitting the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden threaten to disrupt international supply chains and the freedom of navigation, which is critical to global security, stability, and prosperity.

The Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian E. Nelson said” Today’s joint action with the United Kingdom demonstrates our collective action to leverage all authorities to stop these attacks”.
