Saudi Arabia has warned that a global energy crisis could erupt if Yemen’s Houthi attacks do not stop attacking its oil facilities.
Princess Reema Bint Bandar, Saudi ambassador to the United States, said in a statement that attacks on Saudi oil facilities by Houthi militias backed by Iran could destabilize global energy supplies. The attacks pose a serious threat to both the lives of Saudi nationals working at Aramco and workers from 80 other countries and the global economy.
Princess Reema bint Bandar said that Saudi Arabia was showing patience with armed drones and ballistic missile attacks. However, the Saudi military shot down 526 Houthi drones and 346 ballistic missiles to protect civilians.
Attacks on the border are on the rise, while the Houthi militia. Which recently fought with Iranian help, also sought control of oil installations in Marb.
The assault was the third on Saudi Arabia simply that day. The Houthis said they hit King Khalid airbase in Khamis Mushait in the south of the realm. And Saudi state media announced an assault on Jazan, by the Yemeni line, saying it captured and obliterated a rocket.
He said Saudi Arabia wanted a political solution to the Yemeni conflict. But that Iranian-backed extremists were continuing to escalate the conflict across the border.
The Saudi ambassador said that the Houthis did not allow UN teams to go to repair the oil tanker in the Red Sea, which is constantly in disrepair. They can be left astray.
It should be noted that attacks Saudi oil installations by Houthi militias. It has been going on for the past several years and has intensified in the last few months. Last week, the Houthis also claimed to have targeted oil installations in the Ras Tanura area. The attacks were condemned by other countries, including the United States.
