Saudi Arabia intercepts Houthi-fired missile aimed at oil facility

Saudi Arabia intercepts Houthi-fired missile aimed at oil facility”

Saudi oil industry sources said that oil operations and shipments were proceeding as normal and that oil security around oil facilities inside the Kingdom had not been raised further.

The Saudi-led coalition says it has since lifted the restrictions, but a recent visitor to the main port of Hodeida, humanitarian worker Suze van Meegen, described it as a "wasteland" in an interview with AFP in late March.

The Houthis, who control most of northern Yemen, have launched missiles at Saudi Arabia, including the capital Riyadh, in the past few days.

In April 2017, Saudi forces said they have foiled an attempt to blow up an Aramco fuel terminal in southern Saudi Arabia using a high-speed boat laden with explosives, alleging Yemen's Houthis were behind the attempt.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates intervened against the Houthis in Yemen's war in 2015 to restore the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The Houthis consider the missiles to be retaliation for the heavy Saudi airstrikes against the group in Yemen.

Maliki welcomed the global condemnation of Houthi attempts to target navigation, as well as firing of ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabia.

France is a major arms vendor to Saudi Arabia and separate rights groups have accused the country of doing too little to ensure that its weapons are not used in the Saudi military campaign.

Observers say Saudi Arabia has sought to atone for its war in Yemen by writing a $930 million cheque for United Nations humanitarian efforts in the country.
