The Department of State is designating Yusuf al-Madani pursuant to E.O. 13224, a counterterrorism authority, on the basis that he poses a significant risk of committing acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States.

Al-Madani is a prominent Houthi military leader and is the commander of the fifth military zone in Al Hudaydah, Hajjah, Al Mahwit, and Raymah, Yemen.

Persistent Houthi repositioning and other violations of the Hudaydah ceasefire agreement threaten stability in a city that serves as a critical thoroughfare for humanitarian and essential commercial commodities, and one that faces some of the highest levels of humanitarian needs.

Additionally, there are regular reports of Houthi attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure in and around Hudaydah.
