Breaking: Saudi claims ‘vital’ oil installation struck in southwest
Saudi Arabia claims that a distribution terminal for oil products has been struck with a projectile in the kingdom’s southwestern region of Jizan, identifying the alleged target as one of the country’s “vital installations.”
Saudi Arabia’s energy ministry reported the alleged incident in early Friday, the official Saudi Press Agency said.
“The attack resulted in a fire in one of the terminal’s tanks. The attack left no casualties,” the ministry noted, according to the agency.
Such incidents affect the Saudi’s “petroleum exports” and “maritime traffic,” the report added.
No party has claimed responsibility for the incident yet.
