Yemen´s Houthis launch drone attack on Saudi Arabia's Aramco facility

Arab News to become first Saudi 'gender-balanced' newspaper by 2020

Houthi rebels in Yemen has upped the ante on Wednesday, firing ballistic missiles over Riyadh, according to the Houthis, in retaliation for air raids led by a Saudi-led coalition.

A total of 18 Houthi rebels were killed and almost 30 others injured in the gunbattles with the national army forces in southwestern city of Taiz, according to a statement revealed by the media center of the pro-government forces in the city.

The Iran-aligned Yemeni rebels, who have been fighting a Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen since 2015, said that they targeted on Wednesday morning local time the Abha airport in Asir and Aramco in Jazan, according to the Houthis' Al-Masirah outlet.

One man was killed in Riyadh last month by debris after the military shot down a flurry of missiles, the first casualty of the Yemen war in the Saudi capital.

"An Iranian ballistic missile launched from Sadaa towards Riyadh was successfully intercepted by Saudi Air Defence earlier today", Colonel Turki al-Malki, spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Huthis, said.

An Israeli military construction vehicle next to the security fence in northern Gaza was the target of an attempted.

Aramco in a statement Wednesday said, "Saudi Aramco operations and facilities, including our facilities in Jizan, are operating normally and safely".

Welbeck brace fires Gunners past Saints
N'golo Kante made his 100th Premier League appearance in less than three seasons when Chelsea played West Ham on Sunday. Southampton's defeat kept it in the bottom three, three points behind Crystal Palace but with a game in hand.

The company is building a 400,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Jizan, part of a new economic city on the Red Sea, which is expected to become fully operational in 2019.

There was no immediate comment from the government on the source of the rocket.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war in March 2015 in support of Yemen's former Riyadh-friendly government and against the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which is now running state affairs.

Two separate airstrikes hit a reinforcement convoy and another Houthi-controlled position in al-Bayda, the ministry said on its official website.

The United Nations says 10,000 people have died in the three-year-old war, and three out of four Yemenis - 22 million civilians - need relief aid.

Saudi Arabia accuses its rival Iran of smuggling missiles to the Huthis - a charge Tehran denies.
