A hostile attack targeted a petroleum products distribution plant in Jeddah, said the Saudi-led Arab coalition on Sunday.


The attack resulted in a fire breaking out in one of the tanks. It was controlled and did not result in any casualties.


The coalition blamed the attack on the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen, adding that it reflects their rejection of peace efforts to end the suffering of the Yemeni people.
