Oil tanks at an oil processing facility of Saudi Aramco, a Saudi Arabian state-owned oil and gas company, at the Abqaiq oil field. An official from the Saudi Aramco oil company on Tuesday said customers were unaffected by an attack that came from Yemen's Houthi group at a petroleum products distribution plant in the north of Jeddah city. Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi forces on Monday said they fired a missile at and struck the Jeddah facility. One of the 13 tanks at Aramco's North Jeddah Bulk Plant is currently out of action, the official told journalists on a tour. He described the site as a "critical facility" which distributes more than 120,000 barrels of products per day domestically to Jeddah, Mecca and the al-Baha region.

CAIRO (Reuters) - The spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said on Monday that Iran-aligned Houthis have been implicated in an attack at a fuel tank at a petroleum products distribution station in the Saudi city of Jeddah, Saudi state news agency SPA reported. Spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki added that this “cowardly terrorist attack, does not target the national capabilities of the kingdom, but rather targets the mainstay‮ ‬of the global economy and its supplies as well as global energy security,” SPA said. Al-Malki also added that the coalition is taking the necessary operational measures to protect civilians and civilian objects, and those who planned and executed these attacks will be held accountable, SPA said.

RIYADH/DUBAI (Reuters) - Yemeni Houthi forces fired a missile that struck a Saudi Aramco oil company distribution station in Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea city of Jeddah, a Houthi military spokesman said on Monday. FILE PHOTO: A view shows branded oil tanks at Saudi Aramco oil facility in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia October 12, 2019. Over the almost six-year-old war, Houthi forces have carried out many missile and drone strikes on civilian airports and oil infrastructure in Saudi, as well as on the capital Riyadh. The Saudi-led coalition says it intercepts many attacks, and has responded with air strikes on Houthi-held territory. Cross-border attacks by Houthi forces, who control most of north Yemen, have escalated since late May when a truce prompted by the novel coronavirus pandemic expired.

“The sniper kept on firing,” Mohamed Abyad, the uncle of the child also named Mohamed, told NBC News. Mohamed Faisal,10, was killed in a sniper attack last month in Yemen, his uncle said. Mohamed was only 10 when a suspected Houthi sniper killed him. That was in October — the deadliest month for Yemeni children and their families so far this year, according to Save the Children. And as the Yemeni war continues, the chance for respite for Yemeni children feels remote.

Yemen aid workers fear possible U.S. blacklisting of Houthis

DUBAI (Reuters) - Humanitarian agencies say a possible U.S. designation of Yemen’s Houthi group as a foreign terrorist organisation would prevent lifesaving aid to the conflict-riven country, where fears of famine are rising. President Donald Trump’s administration has been threatening to blacklist the group, sources have told Reuters, as part of its “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran. Two separate sources told Reuters around a dozen American aid workers had left the country this week. Other sources said an informal note had been sent to American aid workers last week, in anticipation of potential safety concerns in Houthi-controlled areas. Aid workers also worry a designation - with the increased burden on banks’ compliance mechanisms - would impact Yemenis’ access to financial systems and remittances from abroad, as well as complicating imports and raising goods prices further.

CAIRO (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition said on Friday it had intercepted and destroyed five explosive-laden drones launched towards Saudi Arabia by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis on Thursday. The Saudis have regularly accused the Houthis of using drones and missiles to attack Saudi Arabia. Yemen has been locked in conflict since 2014 when the Houthis seized Sanaa, the capital, and then much of the country’s north. Fighting escalated in March 2015 when the Saudi-led coalition intervened to restore the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
