Houthis attack Saudi energy facilities

Houthis launch drone attacks on Saudi energy infrastructure: Yemen’s Houthi rebels launched drone and missile strikes on Saudi Arabia that targeted a liquified natural gas plant, a water desalination plant, a power station and an oil refinery owned by Aramco and China’s Sinopec, the Saudi Press Agency said yesterday. The attacks caused a temporary drop in output at the oil refinery, but no casualties, it said.
