Top member in the Supreme Political Council, Mohammad Ali al-Houthi has commented on the new US sanctions on a number of people, including Yemenis whom Washington claims to be affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and the Ansarullah movement.
Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said that the United States America is “putting the option of war as a priority in Yemen while claiming to want peace.”
“Imposing sanctions allegedly in favour of peace is in reality an obstacle to achieving peace,” al-Houthi added.
تضع امريكا خيار الحرب اولوية
لها في اليمن في حين تتظاهر بالسلام
ان فرض العقوبات بزعم فرض السلام عائق له بدون جدوائية
جريمة جديدة تستهدف القطاع الخاص بعد استهداف البنك المركزي وايقاف تصديرالنفط وضرب المصانع وتجويع اليمنيين بالحصاروايقاف الرواتب وهي خطة ممنهجة للقضاء ع الاقتصاد

Mohammed Al-Houthi said he considered the US sanctions as a new crime targeting the private sector after targeting the central bank and stopping the export of oil, bombing factories and starving Yemenis by siege and cutting salaries.
“This is a systematic plan to eliminate the economy,” he affirmed .
On Thursday, Washington announced sanctions against Yemeni business figures as well as the Swed exchange company
