‘Ansarullah X account suspended due to Zionist lobby influence’

Tehran, IRNA – The administrator of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement’s account on social media platform X, formerly Twitter, has said that the recent suspension of the account was carried out under the influence of the Zionist lobby.

The Ansarullah account’s administrator said that the suspension also shows the double standard approach taken by the social media platform’s managers, Arab news outlets reported on Saturday.

On January 18, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in a statement that Washington had once again placed the Yemeni Ansarullah movement on its so-called list of terrorist groups and that the decision would take effect within 30 days.

Washington claimed that the designation was due to Ansarullah’s attacks against ships in the Red Sea.  

Yemen has time and again said that its attacks target Israeli-linked ships and will continue until the ongoing aggression against Gaza stops, and the blockade is lifted.

Yemeni armed forces will not hesitate to carry out and expand military operations in defense of Yemen and support of the Palestinian people, Spokesman for the Armed Forces of Yemen Brigadier General Yahya Saree said earlier on Saturday.

Yemen’s armed forces have been targeting Israeli ships and those bound for ports in occupied Palestine since November in solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza.

The Yemeni operations have prompted some shipping companies to detour around southern Africa to avoid the Red Sea, which normally carries about 12 percent of global maritime trade.
