Yemen's Houthi movement said today it had fired 17 drones and two ballistic missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia, including Saudi Aramco facilities in Jubail and Jeddah, Reuters reported.
There was no immediate Saudi confirmation. Saudi Aramco, the state oil firm, said when contacted by Reuters that it would respond at the earliest opportunity.
Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sare'e said on Twitter the group's barrage included ten Samad-3 drones fired at refineries in the Red Sea city of Jeddah and Jubail in the Eastern Province.
Aramco's refinery in Jeddah was decommissioned in 2017 but it has a petroleum products distribution plant there that the Houthis have previously targeted.
Sare'e said the movement also targeted military sites in the southern Saudi cities of Khamis Mushait and Jazan.
