Saudi Aramco facilities 'safe' after Yemen's Houthis claim drone attack

Saudi Arabia intercepts missile fired towards Jizan

Sharaf Lokman, a spokesman for the Houthis, said the attack came after Saleh al-Samad - president of the Supreme Political Council that runs Yemen's capital, Sanaa, and other rebel-held areas - declared the start of "a year of ballistic missiles". Houthis reported the attack on their website saying dozens of Sudanese soldiers had been killed and armoured vehicles destroyed.

Last month, the war took its first casualty in Riyadh after a man was killed by debris from a barrage of incoming missiles shot down by the Saudis over the capital. Saudi officials have not yet commented on the report.

Yemen´s armed Houthi movement said on Wednesday it had launched a drone strike on a facility belonging to oil giant Saudi Aramco in southern Saudi Arabia -though the company said its plants there were operating "normally and safely".

Saudi Arabia's air defence forces intercepted a ballistic missile over Riyadh on Wednesday, state media said, after at least three blasts were heard and three clouds of smoke were seen in the sky above the capital.

The coalition has launched thousands of air strikes in Yemen which have hit schools, markets and hospitals, killing hundreds of people - though it says it does not target civilians.

The first targeted Abha worldwide airport in Asir province, while the second was approaching a "civilian object" in Jizan province.

The arms monitor Conflict Armament Research (CAR) said it had evidence showing the Qasef-1 and other Houthi kit was made in Iran and was not of indigenous design and construction "in contrast to Houthi statements".

Maliki said that after examining the debris of the object, specialists of the joint coalition forces said it was found to be a hostile Houthi aircraft with Iranian characteristics and specifications that were trying to target the airport protected under global humanitarian law.
