UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The followers of the Ansar Alla Yemeni Hussite rebel movement, who claimed responsibility for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, threatened a new attack.
This was reported by the Arabian television channel Al Masirah, citing a representative of the movement on Monday, September 16.
“We are assuring that we can get where we want and when we want, and the Saudi regime must end its aggression and siege of Yemen,” the movement’s broadcast told the channel. A rebel spokesman warned companies and foreigners working at Saudi oil facilities that a new strike could happen at any time.
According to a representative of the rebel armed forces, “the second operation to balance the Saudi regime in a balanced way” at the refineries was carried out by drones operating on new, including jet engines.
The Hussite warlord promised the Saudi regime to increase the number of attacks until the Saudi regime falls.
On the night of September 14, the media reported a fire in the territory of the Saudi Aramco oil refinery. Later it became known that the followers of Ansar Alla with the help of ten drones attacked oil facilities in the areas of the Abkayk and Khurais fields in eastern Saudi Arabia.
The rebels took responsibility for what happened.
On Saturday, Bloomberg reported that Saudi Arabia cut oil production by half after hitting Saudi Aramco’s oil complexes. The company cut production by 5 million barrels per day. Monday morning volumes were partially restored.
US officials have blamed Iran for these attacks. US President Donald Trump also said the country has speculations about who might be behind the attack.
Republican Senator Lindsay Graham suggested discussing the possibility of attacks on Iran’s oil facilities if Tehran “continues to provoke.” Iran’s Foreign Ministry called these allegations a lie.
In Yemen, the fifth year is an armed conflict between the Hussites and the troops of Saudi-backed President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
