The Saudi-led Arab coalition said Friday that Saudi Aramco’s Bulk Plant in Jeddah was the target of an attack.


Official Spokesperson of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki said: "At 17:25, Saudi Aramco’s Bulk Plant in Jeddah was targeted with an act of aggression, the early indications of which suggest that it was targeted by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militias."


A fire erupted in two tanks in the oil facility; the fire was controlled, and no injuries or loss of life were recorded.


"This hostile escalation targets oil facilities, and aims to undermine energy security and the backbone of global economy. These hostile attacks had no impact or repercussions in any way, shape or form on public life in Jeddah City," said Malki.
