Riyadh, November 12, 2020, SPA -- An Official Source at the Ministry of Energy stated, with reference to the operation carried out by the joint forces of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen as they intercepted and destroyed two unmanned boats carrying explosives launched by the terrorist Houthi militia on Wednesday evening, November 11, 2020: The operation, which occurred in close proximity to a floating offloading platform that belongs to the Jazan oil products terminal, resulted in a limited fire on the platform’s floating hoses. The fire has been dealt with according to the rules, and- thanks to God- caused no injuries or fatalities.
The source emphasized that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia strongly condemns the cowardly attack, adding that such criminal acts directed against vital facilities do not target the Kingdom alone, but they also target the security of oil exports, the stability of energy supplies to the world, the freedom of international trade, and the entire global economy. In addition, they have a negative impact on maritime navigation, and expose regional waters and coasts to potentially devastating ecological damage resulting from such acts of sabotage.
