A “limited fire” broke out at an electricity distribution plant in the town of Samtah in Saudi Arabia’s Jazan following a rocket attack, the Arab Coalition said on Friday.

The coalition said that there were no fatalities, according to state news agency (SPA).

“We are practicing self-restraint, and we reserve the right to respond at the right time,” the coalition added.

The coalition also said that a “hostile” attack targeted the National Water Company tanks in the Kingdom’s Dhahran Al Janub.

Earlier on Friday, the coalition said that Saudi Arabia’s defenses have destroyed nine explosive-laden drones launched by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis, one ballistic missile launched toward Jazan and one explosive-laden drone launched toward Najran.

The Houthis have recently targeted oil facilities in the Kingdom and launched several drones toward cities in Saudi Arabia.

The string of attacks come after Secretary General of the GCC Nayef al-Hajraf said that Riyadh will host talks between Yemen’s warring parties from March 29 until April 7.
