The Yemen-based Houthis carried out four strikes within one week, targeting multiple Saudi interests; The Iranian-funded terror group initiated a three-day ceasefire with the Saudi Kingdom over the weekend.
An Aramco distribution station was the target of the latest Houthi rebel attack on Saudi Arabia last Friday. The site is located in Jeddah, which resides along the Red Sea due west of Mecca. The attack resulted in a massive petroleum fire, but no injuries or casualties occurred. Images on social media revealed a gigantic black cloud of smoke covering the sky.
Friday’s attack was the fourth Houthi-led strike on the Saudi Kingdom within the last week, which the Houthis claim to be in response to several Saudi coalition strikes inside of Yemen amid the Yemeni Civil War.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett condemned the attack in no uncertain terms, stating, “The State of Israel expresses its sorrow to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia after the horrific attack by the Iranian-backed Houthis. This attack is further proof that Iran’s regional aggression knows no bounds & reinforces the concern of Iran’s IRGC being removed from the FTO list.”
As of Saturday, the Iranian-funded terror group stated that it would pause missile attacks for three days with hopes of it being longer if the Saudis put an end to coalition strikes. Of course, the Houthis also had their list of additional conditions. The Saudis have been striking the Houthis in Yemen throughout the civil war, backing the internationally-recognized government led by President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
