Here Is The Latest Update About Yemen’s Houthis’ Claim Attack On Aramco Facility After Reports Of A Huge Fire In the Saudi City Of Jeddah:
After official media in Saudi Arabia claimed rocket and drone strikes targeting an oil stockpile in Jeddah and other sites in Riyadh, Yemen’s Houthis rebels have acknowledged a series of attacks on the country.
As Jeddah prepared to host a Formula One race on Sunday, a massive cloud of black smoke could be seen rising from the factory. While Saudi Arabia and its state-owned oil company, Saudi Aramco, did not immediately recognize the fire, it looked to be focused on fuel storage that the Houthis had previously targeted.
Later on Friday, Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sarea said the group used missiles to assault Aramco’s installations, as well as drones to attack the refineries in Ras Tanura and Rabigh. The strike also hit important facilities in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, according to Sarea.
“Saree tweeted, “Aramco facilities in Jeddah, as well as significant facilities in Saudi enemy’s capital, Riyadh.” He also said that “a huge number of drones” struck Aramco facilities in Jizan, Najran,
Ras Tanura, and Rabigh. According to Al Arabiya TV, the kingdom’s air defense system destroyed two explosive-laden drones aimed at Najran, according to the alliance.
The strikes by the Houthi group were condemned by the US.”At a time when the parties should be focused on de-escalation and bringing much-needed lifesaving relief to the Yemeni people ahead of Ramadan,
the Houthis continue their destructive behavior and reckless terrorist attacks striking civilian infrastructure,” US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.
The attacks occurred as Saudi Arabia continues to lead a coalition against the Houthis, who are backed by Iran and took control of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, in September 2014.
The monarchy, which entered the Yemeni conflict in 2015, has been chastised worldwide for bombings that have killed dozens of people, a point made by the Houthis as they launch drones, missiles, and mortars into the kingdom.
The North Jiddah Bulk Plant is located immediately southeast of the city’s international airport, which serves as a vital stopover point for Muslim pilgrims on their way to Mecca. The blaze was captured on video and matched up with known geographical characteristics in the area.
On Sunday, the second-ever Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will be held in Jiddah, despite recent attacks on the kingdom raising fears among some.”We are currently waiting for further information from the authorities on what has occurred,” the F1 said in a statement.
