TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Yemeni Armed Forces’ spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said Yemen’s army targeted a distribution station operated by the Saudi Aramco oil company in Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea city of Jeddah with a missile.

 

This is according to Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the Yemeni Armed Forces’ spokesman, who said in a tweet on Monday that the attack was carried out with a Quds-2 type winged missile, Al-Manar reported.

He also posted a satellite image with the label “north Jeddah bulk plant-Saudi Aramco”. Google Maps shows a facility matching that image and description on the northern outskirts of Jeddah.

“The strike was very accurate, and ambulances and fire engines rushed to the target,” Saree said.

He warned foreign companies and residents in Saudi to exercise caution as “operations will continue”.

The military spokesman said the strike had been carried out in response to the Saudi-led coalition’s ongoing airstrikes against Yemen.

Aramco’s oil production and export facilities are mostly in Saudi’s Eastern Province, more than 1,000 km across the country from Jeddah.

State oil giant Aramco did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
