Houthi attack on Aramco distribution plant in Jeddah causes fire: Coalition
The Arab Coalition said on Sunday an Aramco petroleum products distribution plant in Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah was attacked by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis, leading to a “limited fire” in one of the tanks which was brought under control without injuries or casualties, state TV reported.
The coalition stressed that “the hostile Houthi attacks confirm the rejection of peace efforts aiming to end the suffering of the Yemeni people.”
Earlier on Sunday, the Coalition reported the destruction of an explosive-laden boat in Hodeidah, and the thwarting of an imminent attack targeting the freedom of navigation in the Red Sea.
The Coalition Spokesman said: “We destroyed 106 explosive-laden boats that posed a threat to the freedom of navigation in the southern Red Sea.”
He added: “Our efforts have contributed to protecting shipping lines and global trade.”
The Arab Coalition also announced that Saudi Arabia’s Air Defense Forces had intercepted and destroyed 9 drones launched by the Houthi militia towards Jazan, Khamis Mushait, Taif, Yanbu and Dhahran al-Janoub in Saudi Arabia.
