Using 4 drones, the Houthis announce targeting sensitive sites in Riyadh


A spokesman for the Houthi group announced the targeting of sensitive sites in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, using 4 drones.

There was no confirmation from the Saudi authorities.

In recent weeks, the Iranian-backed group that occupied a large part of Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa, in 2014, intensified its attacks on Saudi Arabia, as the attacks included Saudi Aramco oil facilities.

On Sunday, the Arab Coalition announced the destruction of a booby-trapped plane launched by the Houthi group from Yemen towards the Khamis Mushayt border, on Sunday. Two booby-trapped boats belonging to the Houthis were also destroyed before carrying out what he said was “an imminent attack from Hodeidah.”

The coalition accused the Houthis of continuing to threaten shipping routes and global trade. Riyadh confirmed that a station for the distribution of petroleum products in the city of Jizan, in southern Saudi Arabia, was subjected to a “sabotage attack with a projectile” that resulted in a fire in one of the station’s tanks, but without causing any casualties.

Last month, Saudi Arabia offered the Houthis a nationwide ceasefire plan and reopening air and sea routes after Houthi attacks on Saudi soil increased.

The initiative announced by the Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, includes reopening Sanaa airport and permitting the import of fuel and foodstuffs through the port of Hodeidah, both of which are under the control of the Houthis allied with Iran.

The six-year-old conflict has caused one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world.
