(ANSA) – NEW YORK, 11 JAN – The US government of Donald Trump has announced, ten days after the end of his mandate, that it will insert the Huthi rebels of Yemen on the black list of “terrorist” groups, which according to international organizations risks aggravating the humanitarian crisis in the country. According to the UN, the decision “risks having serious humanitarian and political repercussions”. “It will have a negative impact on imports of food and other essential goods even as more and more Yemenis are starving,” spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said.
The Yemeni Huthi rebels, supported by Iran and hostile to Saudi influence in the battered Arab country, responded to the US decision by stating that it is the policy of US President Donald Trump that is “terrorist”. According to rumors, Trump is also about to return Cuba to the list of sponsoring states of terrorism, from which it was removed in 2015 by the Obama administration. (HANDLE).
