In a televised statement, a spokesman for the rebel group, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sarea, said ballistic missiles and drones hit the oil giant’s facilities in Ras Tanura, a major port on Saudi Arabia’s Persian Gulf coast and one of its largest refineries, and military positions in nearby Dammam.
Saudi state media later confirmed the Ras Tanura attack, quoting an unnamed Energy Ministry official saying that one petroleum tank farm was attacked Sunday morning. The official said shrapnel from a ballistic missile fell near Aramco’s residential area in Dhahran, which hosts thousands of employees and their families, but there were no casualties or loss of property. The Saudi-led coalition, which has been fighting the Iranian-backed rebels since 2015, then said both attacks were intercepted and the drones downed.
The Houthis launched several armed drone attacks on the kingdom earlier in the day. The coalition said it intercepted 10, that the targets were civilian infrastructure, and that attacking “civilians and civilian objects in Saudi [Arabia] is a red line.”
The coalition said it conducted airstrikes on Yemen’s rebel-held capital, Sanaa. Videos carried by Saudi media and shared on social media showed large plumes of white smoke and massive explosions rattling the city.

Obviously Slow Joe has struck fear in their hearts and the middle east is all quiet. /DrippingSarc
Well no surprise why the ChiComs are working hard on electric cars charged by hundreds of new coal fired power plants.
It seems like a coordinated war. Biden struck the Keystone pipeline and at fracking on Federal lands.
The Saudis will kill them using our weapons and they won’t hold back. It’s a lose lose for us.
Gas went to 3 bucks almost overnight.
I assume Democrats are pleased.
It will help limit our carbon consumption.
Joe, let’s see if we can drive up gas prices to 8 bucks a gallon
Iran strikes via their proxy
This will trigger a power struggle inside the Kdm, and if the result is the correct one, there will be another signatory to the Abraham Accords. If it doesn't go that way, Israel will remind those 2000 corrupt princes that they can just as easily be allowed to burn.
Doesn’t Soros have oil interests in South
“In a televised statement, a spokesman for the rebel group, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sarea, said ballistic missiles and drones hit the oil giant’s facilities in Ras Tanura, a major port on Saudi Arabia’s Persian Gulf coast and one of its largest refineries, and military positions in nearby Dammam.”
They have no ability to do this. This was simply Iranian arms used from Yemen against Saudi. The proper responses to this should be total devastation of Iran’s ability to export oil. Oddly this is easy. Hit Kharg Island and its oil tanks and pumping stations. Just a few B52s could make Kharg Island a raging inferno. Hit the interior oil field pumping stations and all oil then stops. Iran thus then economically collapses.
So oil spikes and they blame somebody but us giving the Green energy people more clout to say —See we need to build more windmills NOW!
The Houthis think they have an ally in Joe. They will be disappointed.
