Israel designates Houthis as terror organization

Israel has designated the Houthi movement as a terror organization, two years after a previous attempt to do so. The move comes after months of Houthi attacks on Israel and international shipping routes in the Red Sea. The designation is seen as a step towards aligning with Saudi Arabia and the UAE against the Iranian axis. The Houthis are a religious revival movement of Shiite-Zaydi Islam and have been engaged in conflicts with the central Yemeni regime since the early 2000s. The designation may help limit the Houthis' funding sources and crack down on their ties with Hamas.
