War between the Houthis of Yemen and Saudi Arabia, which appears to be an extension of proxy wars between the US and Russia and has resulted in terrible crimes including mass starvation, massive destruction of infrastructure, and allegations of genocide, has continued without any end in sight. The conflict appears to have taken another turn as it appears Houthi rebels may have attacked a Saudi Aramco facility according to Reuters.
Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement said on Wednesday it had carried out operations targeting facilities belonging to Saudi Aramco in Jizan on the Red Sea, but there was no immediate confirmation from Saudi authorities of any attack.
Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saria did not say when it had taken place. He said it was carried out in retaliation for an escalation in air strikes.
Other Saudi targets near the border with Yemen, including Abha and Jizan airports and Khamis Mushait military base, had also been targeted “with a large number of rockets and drones”, he said.
State oil giant Aramco declined to comment on the report. (source)
