Drone attacks by Houthi rebels set on fire largest oil facilities of Aramco in Abqaiq and Khurais of Saudi Arabia.

Citing an interior ministry spokesperson, the official Saudi Press Agency said on Saturday the blazes at the facilities in Abqaiq – home to the company’s largest oil processing plant – and Khurais were under control, Aljazeera reported.

Yahia Sarie, the spokesperson for Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks on Saturday.

“The only option for the Saudi government is to stop attacking us,” he said.

The ministry did not identify the source of the attack and said investigations were ongoing. It did not specify if there were any casualties or whether operations at the two facilities had been affected.

In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen in support of the internationally recognised President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was forced out of power by the Houthis.

The war has killed tens of thousands of people and sparked what the United Nations calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, Aljazeera report read.
