Saudi Arabia Reiterates that It Will Not Be Responsible for Any Shortage in Oil Supplies after Houthi Terrorist Attacks on Facilities
March 25, 2022
The Official Spokesperson of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki has stated that Saudi Aramco’s Bulk Plant in Jeddah was a target of a terrorist attack by the Iran backed Houthi militia in Yemen, causing a fire to erupt in two tanks in that facility. No injuries or loss of life were recorded.
The Saudi Ambassador to the United States has reiterated the Kingdom's condemnation of the escalation of terrorist attacks by the Iran backed Houthis in Yemen against civilian targets and critical infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, which constitutes a blatant violation of all international laws and norms.
HRH Princess Reema Bandar Al Saud has stated today that “the Iran backed terrorist Houthis continue to attack our civilians, infrastructure and energy facilities with Iranian made missiles and UAV’s with impunity. The international community must act against this aggression that targets innocent civilians and global energy supplies.”
The Saudi Armed Forces have successfully intercepted and destroyed most of the over 400 ballistic missiles and over 1000 UAV’s launched by the terrorist Iran backed Houthi militia in Yemen. These reckless and brazen attacks have already resulted in civilian casualties, and continues to represent a threat to the safety of the Kingdom’s citizens and residents from all over the world, as well as a threat to the stability and safety of global energy supplies.
Meanwhile, an official in the Ministry of Energy stated that the Kingdom will not be responsible for any shortage in oil supplies to the international markets, while these terrorist attacks by Iran-backed Houthi terrorist militias against its oil facilities continue. The official added that the Kingdom calls on all nations and organizations to stand together against these terrorist acts.
The Kingdom urges the international community to be aware of the danger of Iran’s continuous provision of ballistic missiles and advanced drones to the Houthis in Yemen, which are used to target the Kingdom’s oil, gas and refining facilities.
The Kingdom will continue to take all appropriate and necessary measures consistent with international laws to protect the country from these indiscriminate and cowardly terrorist attacks.
