In a letter, 25 members of the US House of Representatives, led by a senior member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, condemned the blacklisting of Yemen's Ansarullah by Donald Trump's administration.

Iran PressAmerica: In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, US Congressmen stressed the catastrophic consequences of blacklisting Yemeni Ansarullah and called for information on the process that led to this hasty political decision.

"This move in the final days of the Trump administration will undoubtedly exacerbate the world's greatest humanitarian crisis and put thousands of Yemenis at greater risk," US congressman Gregory Meeks wrote in the letter.

"The fact is that the Trump administration was in a hurry to make this decision, ignoring the consequences that this act would bring upon Yemeni civilians," he added.

"This decision will make it harder for UN Special Representative Martin Griffiths to work as a peace negotiator and will only hinder the end of this war," US politician said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday that the ministry has notified Congress of its decision to place Yemeni Ansarullah in the list of "foreign terrorist organizations."

Pompeo's remarks met with widespread reactions from Yemenis and non-Yemeni countries, figures and groups.

The US decision to declare the Ansarullah movement a terrorist group is being made while Yemen is the poorest Arab country that has been entangled with a humanitarian crisis made by aggressors. 

Saudi Arabia with the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia has launched a military invasion of Yemen in March 2015 and since then imposed a land, sea, and air blockade on innocent Yemeni people.

The military aggression has so far resulted in nothing but the killing and wounding of tens of thousands of Yemenis, as well as the displacement of millions of citizens, the destruction of infrastructure, famine and the spread of infectious diseases in the country. 219
