Bloomberg reported that Yemeni rebels attacked oil and gas facilities at the Shaybah field in southeast Saudi Arabia, but failed to disrupt production. Saudi Arabian Oil Co or Aramco as the company is known, extinguished a small fire at a natural gas liquids plant at Shaybah on Saturday morning. There were no casualties and oil operations were not interrupted by the incident.

Yemeni said that “We will provide further details as they become available.”

Yemen’s Houthi rebel leader Mr Abdul Malik al-Houthi claimed the drone attack in a televised speech. He said the strike was meant to deliver an “important message” to the Saudi-led coalition which has been waging war to unseat the Iran-backed Houthi rebels since they overran the capital about four years ago. The attack is “a joint strike against Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates,” according to a tweet published by Houthi-owned al-Masirah TV.
