Yemenis in Twitter Trends worldwide: The #HouthiTerrorismInYemen

A campaign, with the participation of Yemeni activists, politicians, and media professionals,today is Monday, continued to publish information about violations by the Houthi movement in Yemen. They included tweets supporting the designation of the Houthis as a terrorist organization, and calling on the world to make the decision to appoint the Houthis to the list of terrorist organizations, just as the United States did.

During the past hours, thousands of Yemeni users joined Twitter, following the launch of a major online campaign under the hashtag #HouthiTerrorismInYemen, in both Arabic and English, that focused on Houthi violations of human rights in Yemen.

According to "Nashwan News" monitoring, many Yemenis, including academics, officials and human rights activists, have recorded stories of violations they personally experienced or witnessed, reflecting the terrorist practices of the Iranian-backed Houthi group.

Last night, the hashtag reached the twitter trends - worldwide, after recording 167,000 tweets within just five hours, and Yemenis continued to tweet, until about a quarter of a million tweets arrived, by Monday morning.

The Yemenis published thousands of stories, showing what they were subjected to by the Houthi militia, which they said practiced all kinds of terrorism, from killing, displacement, bombing of homes to torture of prisoners, and other practices.

Journalist Youssef Ajlan wrote: I am one of those who have been tortured, kidnapped, forcibly disappeared, and detained in Houthi prisons for 14 months without any guilt. Then the militias exiled me and prevented me from returning to my home, my family, and my city, to which I belong, and I still suffer psychologically and physically from what I was subjected to today.

The head of the Yemeni government, Maeen Abdul-Malik, said that the US administration’s decision to classify the Houthi militia as a foreign terrorist organization should be built upon by the European Union and the international community to put an end to these militias ’disregard for political solutions and their insistence on implementing Iran's agenda.
The Yemeni tweeters emphasized the importance of the United States of America continuing to classify the Houthis as a terrorist group, and called on other countries to take the same decision, in a way that would support peace in Yemen.
