UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Ansaralla rebels (Hussites), who seized power in northern Yemen, threatened to attack the UAE’s main cities, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, after an attack on oil companies in Saudi Arabia.
“We are announcing for the first time that there are dozens of sites in our list of targets in the UAE, including in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, which could be attacked at any suitable time,” said General Yahya Saria, a representative of the Houthi armed forces.
The broadcast of his speech was conducted by the Al-Jazeera television channel.
The largest exporter and one of the three largest oil producers, Saudi Arabia, after the attack on its oil facilities on September 14, reduced production by more than half – by 5.7 million barrels per day from the usual mark of about 9.8 million.
The Saudi Minister of Energy announced on September 17 that, thanks to the use of reserves, oil supplies had already returned to their previous level, and that lost production has so far been restored by half.
Hussite Yemeni rebels against whom the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia are fighting, said oil targets were attacked by fighters of their movement using unmanned aerial vehicles. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said there was no evidence of an attack from Yemen, and blamed Iran for it. Iranian Foreign Ministry Rejected Pompeo Accusations.
