Tehran-backed Houthi terrorists have now joined their patrons in offering scholarships to any student who is expelled by their school because of their participation in the ongoing pro-Hamas demonstrations that have taken over many American college campuses.

"We are serious about welcoming students that have been suspended from U.S. universities for supporting Palestinians," an official from Sana'a University, which is run by the Houthis, told Reuters on Friday.

The comments join a statement released by the school's governing board condemning "what academics and students of U.S. and European universities are being subjected to, suppression of freedom of expression," and referring to the often-violent anti-Israel protests as "humanitarian."

The announcement reportedly included an email address where interested parties could forward application materials.

The news outlet stated that the invitation sparked a wave of sarcastic internet posts by Yemeni social media users.

The overture comes as leaders from Shiraz University and Shahid Beheshti University in Iran have made similar announcements regarding their institution’s financial aid policies.
