In light of the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia’s attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil installations, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicated that Saudi Arabia will not be held liable for any shortages of oil supplies to global markets.
According to the source, the Kingdom values the international community’s awareness of the dangers of Iran continuing to transfer ballistic missile technology and advanced unmanned aircraft to the terrorist Houthi militants.
The attacks are said to be aimed against oil and gas production sites in the Kingdom because of the devastating consequences on the production, processing, and refining sectors.
The international community must take responsibility for sustaining energy supplies and standing hard against the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia, according to the source.
The Saudi Ministry of Energy declared on Sunday that the Sinopec Refinery’s production has temporarily diminished as a result of the Houthi attacks, and that compensation will be provided.
According to the ministry, a remote drone targeted a petroleum products distribution station in Jizan on Saturday evening.
“At approximately 5:30 this morning, two independent drones attacked the Yanbu Natural Gas Plant and then the facilities of the Yanbu Sinopec Refining Company (YASREF),” the ministry noted.
The attack on the Yanbu Sinopec Refining Company (YASREF) facilities resulted in a temporary reduction in refinery production, which will be compensated by the stockpile.
