The US Treasury Department justified its recent actions by saying that anti-government Shiites in Yemen are using the money to attack commercial ships and destabilize the region, among other things.

In its statement, the Ministry of Finance stressed the following:

The sanctions targeted a network through which Saeed Al-Jamal, a businessman working in Iran, finances the Houthi rebels.

Two of the sanctioned financial companies are located in Yemen and one in Türkiye. The sanctions freeze all US resources owned by the organizations and place the companies under a general trade embargo. Since November 19, pro-Palestinian supporters in the Gaza conflict have seized or attacked dozens of commercial ships in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden using missiles and drones. Iran has repeatedly denied providing assistance to the G20 countries.

After the attacks caused many companies operating container ships to divert and not sail on routes including the Red Sea and the Suez Canal, according to the latest data from Freghtos, container shipping fees increased by about 53 percent.
