Houthis claim attack on Saudi cities


Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement said on Saturday it had fired 14 drones at several Saudi Arabian cities, including at Saudi Aramco facilities in Jeddah.

The Houthi military spokesperson Yahya Sarea said in a televised press conference that the group had attacked Aramco’s refineries in Jeddah as well as military targets in Riyadh, Jeddah, Abha, Jizan and Najran. Sarea’s statement contained inaccuracies.

It mentioned the wrong name for the international airport in Jeddah and the wrong location for King Khalid base, saying it was in Riyadh when it is actually in the south of the kingdom.

Meanwhile, state-run Saudi Press Agency quoted the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen as saying that it had attacked 13 targets during a military operation against the Houthis.

The operation hit weapons depots, air defence systems and drones’ communication systems in Sanaa, Saada, and Marib provinces of Yemen, the coalition said.–Reuters
