The Saudi Cabinet said on Tuesday that the terrorist acts against the oil-pumping stations are targeting global oil supply.

The Saudi Cabinet added that the terrorist attack on the two Saudi ships is a direct threat to maritime safety and reflects negatively on regional and international peace and security.

Two oil-pumping stations for the East-West pipeline had been hit by explosive-laden drones, Saudi Arabia's Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources Khalid al-Falih said earlier on Tuesday.

Four commercial vessels, two of which are Saudi, were targeted by “acts of sabotage” near the territorial waters of the United Arab Emirates, the UAE foreign ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
