The media, citing the Saudi Ministry of the Interior, reported that these facilities in Saudi Arabia were subjected to a massive attack using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
As a result, the attack led to the occurrence of large fires at the deposits and transportation facilities of "black gold".
Dozens of vehicles and hundreds of firefighters work at the fire sites. According to the Saudi emergency services, the fires were localized. There is no data on the dead and injured at this moment. At the same time, experts note that the damage from striking these objects globally can amount to several billion dollars - due to changes in the price of a barrel of oil. Saudi Arabia itself has to carry out large-scale restoration work.
At this time, no one has yet claimed responsibility for strikes at Saudi Aramco’s facilities. However, Middle Eastern media suggest that this could have been accomplished by a Hussite group. At the same time, accusations against Iran rained down.
Explosions are heard behind the frames of one of the published video. It is stated that we can talk about a terrorist attack "on the ground":
