SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's Houthi rebels, said on Wednesday, that, their drone air force targeted the refinery of the Saudi oil giant, Aramco company, in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
"The Yemeni Drone Air Force, on Wednesday, targeted the refinery of the Saudi oil Aramco company, in Riyadh," read a statement.
Just one hour before the Houthi statement, the Saudi Aramco said, in a statement, on its official Twitter account, that, the company's "fire protection crews and Civil Defence, have successfully controlled a minor fire, due to an operational incident at the Riyadh Refinery today."
"No personnel is injured and no impact on operations," it said, without referring to any drone attack, alleged by the Iranian-allied Yemeni Shiite Houthi rebels.
Border cities in Saudi Arabia, including vital military and economic facilities, have been the most targeted in such Houthi missile attacks, with the majority allegedly to have been intercepted.
In May, the Houthis fired a ballistic missile at the distribution centre of the oil giant, in Saudi border city of Jazan, but Saudi state media said, the missile fell into a desert near the city.
Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition against the Houthis, in support of the Yemeni exiled government, over the last three years. The Saudi-led coalition campaign aimed to defeat the Houthis, recapture northern cities and reinstate Hadi into power in Sanaa.
