Ali: World tightening noose around Houthis

Abdelrehim Aly


Veteran journalist, Director of the Center for Middle East Studies in Paris, and Head of the Board of Directors and Editorial Board of al-Bawaba News, Abdelrahim Ali, called Thursday for a decisive international response in the face of the attacks launched by the terrorist Houthi militia against Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

He said recent calls by a host of members of the European Parliament to include the militia in global terrorism lists for using civilians as human shields, committing heinous crimes against civilians and launching cross-border attacks is a step in the right direction.

He added that the same calls also compound calls by American legislators to punish the Iran-backed group.

"The world is tightening the noose around Iran's terrorist arms in the region," Ali wrote on Facebook.
