Iran Focus

London, 6 Nov - Saudi Arabia has put a bounty on the heads of 40 high-ranking members of the Houthi terrorist group, which is backed by the Iranian Regime, that are wanted for terrorist activity across the Middle East.

On Monday, the Saudi Ministry of the Interior released a list of 40 leaders and other high ranking officials from within the Iran-backed Houthis who are responsible for planning, executing and supporting various terrorist activities across the region and around the world, via the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The statement listed financial rewards for information leading the location and/or arrest of these dangerous men, with $30 million offered for the Houthi leader, Abdul Malik Badreddin al-Houthi.

It is part of Saudi Arabia’s renewed push to fight extremist ideology and stop terrorism, as Houthi militias have increased their terrorist activities and efforts to attack, delegitimize, and destabilise Saudi Arabia.

The statement read: "In light of the Kingdom's commitments to combat terrorism, dry up its sources of financing, fight extremist ideology and tools of its publication and promotion and its continuous action to eradicate it and protect the society from it and based on the dedicated increasing of terrorist activity by Houthi group and their continuous endeavour to harm the Kingdom's security with support of the Iranian regime (the sponsor of the all terrorist organisations in the region) and detected bolstering the Houthi terrorist group's cooperation with the Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist organisation within framework of exchanging expertise and enhancing military capabilities among these terrorist organisations and the use of ballistic missiles in a grave precedent in which these dangerous missiles are made available to these rogue terrorist organisations in a direct threat to the Kingdom's cities which aims at terrorising the innocent and harming the Kingdom's security, stability, tranquillity and public order, the Kingdom announces the first list of 40 names of leaders and elements responsible for planning, implementing and supporting the Houthi terrorist group's various terrorist activities.”

The Houthis are believed to be using dangerous ballistic missiles in order to intimidate the citizens of Saudi Arabia and make the country insecure.

Many of these Houthi terrorists have extensive ties to the Lebanese Hezbollah, also backed by the Iranian Regime, whom Saudi Arabia is battling against in Lebanon.

Anyone with any information which could lead to the location and/or arrest of these 40 terrorists is advised to contact the Saudi authorities immediately.
