Saudi Arabia’s Presidency of State Security blacklisted 25 individuals and entities for facilitating the financing operations of Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported on Thursday.

The decision, which comes in line with the Kingdom’s strategy to target “terrorist” organizations and their financers, was coordinated with the US, specifically with the US Treasury Department and the Office of Foreign Assets Control.

Ten individuals and 15 entities were blacklisted for facilitating the financing operations of the “terrorist” Houthi militia with the support of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Quds Force, the Presidency of State Security said.

It added that these individuals and entities work as “an international network that aims to destabilize Yemen.”

Based on the Kingdom’s system on combating terror crimes and on the executive mechanisms of UN Security Council resolutions which pertain to combating terrorism and the financing of terrorism, the assets and funds of all blacklisted individuals and entities must be frozen.

“Dealing with [these individuals and entities] directly or indirectly or on their behalf or in their favor is prohibited,” the Presidency of State Security said.
