Britain’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on Tuesday condemned the attack by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia on a petroleum products station in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

“I condemn the Houthi attack on Aramco facilities in Saudi Arabia. This attack on civilian infrastructure contradicts the Houthis’ claims to want to end the conflict,” Raab said on Twitter.

A projectile launched by Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen caused a fire at a petroleum products distribution station in Jedda, the Arab Coalition's spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said on Monday.

An official from the Saudi Aramco oil company on Tuesday said customers were unaffected by an attack that came from Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia at a petroleum products distribution plant in the north of Jeddah city.
