A Houthi military spokesman said the group targeted the Shaybah oil field using 10 drones in what it called the ‘biggest attack’ on the royal administration’s country, which is also the world’s largest exporter of oil.

Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih described the Shaybah as an important facility.

“The target of this attack is global oil supply security, not just the royal administration. It poses a threat to the global economy, ”he said in a comment issued by the Saudi news agency (SPA).

Saudi Aramco said no injuries were reported and no interruptions to oil operations.

“Saudi Aramco’s action team is controlling a limited fire this morning at the Shaybah NGL (natural gas) facility,” the company said in a statement.

The Shaybah is located about 1,000 kilometers from the Houthi-controlled region of northwest Yemen.

The oil field is near the border with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia’s leading ally in the Arab coalition fighting against Houthi backed Iran since 2015.
