Houthi missile hits oil terminal in Saudi Arabia

33

It is confirmed that at least one missile from the number of the Houthis fired from the territory of Yemen hit the oil distribution terminal of the Saudi Aramco company. This oil facility is located in the Saudi city of Jizan.


As a result of the rupture of the warhead, a fire broke out, as reported by the S&P Global information service.

A company spokesman said that "this is an attack not only on the Saudi oil industry, it is an attack on the entire world economy, on security in the field of energy supplies."

At the same time, Saudi Arabia traditionally accused Iran of arming the Yemeni Houthi groups, supplying them with missiles through the port of Hodeidah, which the so-called "Arab coalition" cannot control. At the same time, Riyadh does not raise the question of what this coalition has been doing for many years on the territory of the independent state of Yemen. The Saudi troops do not consider their presence in Yemen to be an occupation.

In the meantime, the Saudi Arabian army command says that in addition to missiles, the Houthis used drones loaded with explosives. According to a representative of the kingdom's armed forces, seven of these drones were intercepted by air defense systems. What air defense systems were used is not said.

In connection with the strike on the Saudi Aramco facility, increased security measures have been introduced along the border with Yemen. Recall that at one time the objects of this Saudi company have already become targets for missile attacks. The recovery and the losses themselves cost hundreds of millions of US dollars.

Experts note that a new attack could lead to an increase in oil prices in the short term.

        I wonder, where are their vaunted Petriots and other Western-made air defense systems?
        What now? Have you missed or missed?
        Or did the Houthis have hypersonic missiles, or some other super-duper means of destruction that cannot be shot down with the existing "Western technologies"?

            Not only Iran, but also North Korea. And Russia in general went to the corps ahead!
            It seems that the United States is therefore so nervously demanding that Iran terminate its missile program. knowing about its real weakness in air defense and missile defense, as well as realizing at the level of real technical specialists that Iran, if it wants, will definitely destroy all US bases in its reach with its missiles, they want to stop threats.
            Vaughn, do not shun the purchase and joint development of the Israeli Sling of David.
            And with regard to North Korea, not so long ago there was an article by one American expert that they suspected that North Korea's missile-building technology over the past year or two has stepped forward an order of magnitude (and they think there: is not Russia and China contributed to this?).

              No, not Russia, and not even China, but rather the same Iran with which the DPRK has long-standing and close contacts in the field of military-technical cooperation.

          After the missile launched from the Patriot wanted to "go home" and came back, smashing several sheds into the trash and scaring away a herd of camels, the Saudis are afraid to use this system once again. Now the kings and the sultans are thinking about whether to buy the S-400 from Russia, but they are shy, because mattresses show them a fist.

          The Americans decided to buy air defense missiles from Israel for their Patriots. The Iron Dome and David's Sling. Something has already been tested and purchased. Experiencing something. But the decision seems to be made on both systems .............. By the way, the frigates 11356 that were built for India are equipped with the Israeli air defense system Barak-8. Those 2 unfinished ships that India buys from us will certainly be equipped with the same Barak-8.

          The mess organized by professionals is just a little inferior to the exemplary order. And if by amateurs, then chaos is worse ... So the brand must be kept.
