A spokesman for the Houthi military said Monday that the Yemeni Houthi forces fired a missile that hit an oil distribution station of the Saudi Aramco company in the city of Jeddah. There was no immediate confirmation by Saudi Arabia of the claim. The Houthi spokesman, Yahya Sarea, said foreign companies and residents in Saudi Arabia should be cautious because "operations will continue."
The attack was carried out in response to operations in Yemen by the coalition led by Saudi Arabia, according to the spokesman. Aramco's production and exporting facilities are mainly in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia, more than 1,000 kilometers from Jeddah.
"The strike was very accurate, and ambulances and fire engines rushed to the target," said Sarea, adding that the attack was carried out with a Quds-2 missile.
