  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Houthis fire missiles, drones at Saudi oil facilities” – below is their description.

    The Saudi government has confirmed that a ballistic missile has hit the Aramco oil plant in Dharan after a drone hit Ras Tanura port earlier – one of the world’s largest oil shipping ports.

    Saudi officials say they intercepted the drone and missile attacks and the damage was minimal. But the Houthis claim the destruction was substantial.

    The Saudi-led coalition responded to the attacks by hitting Houthi rebel targets in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.
