Houthi Rebels Attack Saudi Aramco Facility in Jeddah with Rocket

The Houthi rebel group in Yemen claimed that it attacked a facility of Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company Aramco in Jeddah with a rocket weapon.

The Houthi rebel group in Yemen claimed that it attacked a facility of Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company Aramco in Jeddah with a Quds-2 type winged missile.

“The missile force managed to target the Aramco distribution station in Jeddah with a winged Quds 2 missile,” said Houthi rebel spokesman Yahya Sarea.

Sarea posted a photo of a satellite image with the label: “north Jeddah bulk plant-Saudi Aramco” which was the alleged site of the attack. 

According to their official statement, the rocket hit the target exactly prompting Saudi “ambulances and firefighting vehicles rushed to the targeted location.”

The rebel group earlier warned foreign companies and residents in Saudi to exercise caution as “operations will continue.”

Despite Sarea’s claim, the Saudi government has not yet given a confirmation on the incident.
