TEHRAN (IQNA) – Yemen’s Ansarullah movement called on the people of the country to hold rallies in protest at the US blacklisting of the group.

 

Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council and the Houthi Ansarullah movement, in a post on his Twitter account urged massive presence of people in the rallies, Anadolu Agency reported.

He added that the demonstrations will be held on Monday, January 25.

Al-Houthi said massive participation will showcase Yemen’s decisive stance against the US move.

Washington announced the decision to label the Houthi movement as a foreign “terrorist” organization on the weekend.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said three leaders of what it called the “Iran-backed” Yemeni group would also be branded as “especially designated global terrorists.”

The designation went into effect as of Tuesday, just a day before the administration of US President Donald Trump leaves office.
