The Houthis, who are fighting a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, have repeatedly launched attacks against targets in neighboring Saudi Arabia. Member countries of the Arab Coalition, led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, lead a successful push for the Houthis to be designated a terrorist group by the Arab Parliament on June 19.
