Encouraging to classify Houthis as a terrorist group … Saudi Arabia is setting fire to its outskirts

Several weeks ago, The head of Sana’a government National Delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam,  published a passage from an old poem by the Yemeni poet Moaz al-Junaid, whose re-publication carried messages to the coalition with the lack of seriousness danger in the consultations.

Poetic verses threaten the Saudi alliance with more harsh response, if they continue to obstruct the peace negotiations in order to stop the war in Yemen.

These messages were from Abdulsalam in light of the talk about the consultations exist within back channels with Saudi Arabia to end the war, in conjunction with an American talk about studying the classification of Anssarallah movement as a terrorist organization.

During this period and since 2019, when the head of the Supreme Political Council in Sana’a announced a unilateral initiative to stop the attacks on Saudi Arabia,

Following the biggest blow that targeted Abqaiq and Khurais refineries, which led Saudi Arabia to losing half of its oil production at the time, Sana’a strikes remained limited, although some of attacks targeted Riyadh or Jeddah. However, it was not at the level of intensity that 2019 witnessed, and that, as officials in Sana’a say, is not from weakness or disability, the possibilities exceed the imaginations of the coalition, rather, it is a sign that the goal is to end the war and listen to peace voices.

Now where Washington has declared Anssarallah  a terrorist organization, these accounts will no longer exist,

while Saudi Arabia was the biggest supporter to this step, and the first who welcome it, and raised its speech ceiling  with Houthis, as the Saudi Deputy Crown Prince stated that the solution would only be according to the three references, it is likely Sana’a will inaugurate a new phase that coalition had previously have been heard about it…it is the stage of the great pain, and it will include strikes more painful than those of Abqaiq and Khurais.

Saudi Arabia is the most affected

International observers unanimously agree that Washington’s decision will not have any military benefit against Houthis, and it will be only ink on paper, for they do not have foreign assets, and they do not travel abroad. It is true that it will have an impact on the humanitarian side, but this will give Sana’a a greater motive to launch violent strikes on Saudi Arabia that affect vital installations, its Spokesman of Sana’a forces, Brigadier General Yahya Sarie, previously announced that Sana’a has a list of 10 vital targets capable of targeting all of them in less than 24 hours, it has hundreds of other targets throughout Saudi Arabia.

John Allen and Bruce Riedel from Brookings Institution say America’s move means a buffer against diplomacy, the truth is that Houthis control most of northern Yemen, it is better to deal with them directly than to live in denial. ”

Classifying Houthis as terrorists says a member of Georgetown Strategic Group, R David Harden, will increase Houthis’ use of weapons. And lead to the complexity of attacks against Saudi infrastructure, cities and ports, just as Hezbollah and Hamas became stronger after their classification as a foreign terrorist organization in 1997, Houthis will also seek similar growth in military power and regional influence.
