DUBAI (Reuters) – Yemen’s armed Houthi movement launched a missile at storage tanks belonging to oil giant Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Jizan province on Wednesday, said Yemeni state news agency Saba, which is controlled by the group.
Saudi air defenses shot down a missile in the skies above the province, the kingdom’s official TV channel Ekhbariya reported minutes before the Yemeni claim.
There was no immediate comment from Aramco on the incident.
