Saudi Arabia says oil facility attacks target world supplies

NSD Logo
Saudi Arabia, the world's top crude exporter, has said that attacks on two of its tankers and a major pipeline targeted the security of global oil supplies.

The Saudi cabinet affirmed yesterday evening that such acts of terrorism and sabotage do not only target the kingdom but also the global economy.

Yesterday, Drone attacks shut down one of the kingdom's main oil pipelines. It further increased Gulf tensions after the mysterious sabotage of four ships, two of them Saudi tankers, recently. 

The drone strikes hit two pumping stations on the kingdom's east-west pipeline, which can carry five million barrels of crude per day and provides a strategic alternative route for Saudi exports. 

Yemen's Huthi rebels claimed responsibility for the strikes and said they were a response to "crimes" committed by Saudi Arabia and its allies during more than four years of war in support of the government.
