The strikes follow seven Houthi drone strikes on the Kingdom’s oil infrastructure
Just hours after the Arab Coalition struck Houthi military targets in Sanaa, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al Jubeir directly blamed Iran for recent Houthi drone attacks on the kingdom’s oil infrastructure.
Air strikes by the Saudi-led Arab Coalition struck nine military targets across the Houthi-rebel held Yemeni capital, in an apparent response to a Houthi drone attack on Saudi oil installations.
Mr Al Jubeir also said the Houthis are “an indivisible part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps and subject to the IRGC’s orders,” a connection he said was confirmed by the strikes on Saudi Aramco infrastructure.
