Yemen’s Houthi rebels unleashed a barrage of drone and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, targeting a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, water desalination plant, oil facility and power station.

This was reported by the Saudi state-run media that the attacks early on Sunday did not cause casualties, but damaged civilian vehicles and homes in the area.

This marked the latest escalation in Houthi cross-border attacks on Saudi Arabia as peace talks remain stalled.

Also, Yehia Sarie, a spokesman for Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said the group had launched “a wide and large military operation into the depth of Saudi Arabia”, without immediately elaborating.

The official Saudi Press Agency posted various photos of firetrucks dousing leaping flames with water hoses, as well as wrecked cars and craters in the ground allegedly left by the series of drone and ballistic missile attacks.

Aljazeera reports that the Houthi rebels often target airports and oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, which is the world’s largest oil exporter.

The Yemeni armed group has also carried out several attacks in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this year as it expanded attacks against the two oil-rich Gulf nations.
