Saudi Energy Ministry: Jeddah facility operating normally despite Houthi attack

RIYADH: Operations at a fuel distribution station near Jeddah are continuing as normal after a missile attack by Yemen’s Houthi militia, the Saudi energy ministry said on Tuesday. The incident did not result in any losses in petroleum products, a ministry official told Al Arabiya television.

A fire broke out on Monday at a fuel tank at the petroleum products distribution station, north of Jeddah, as a result of a “terrorist projectile” launched from Yemen. The Iran-backed Houthi militants said they struck the facility in the Red Sea city on Monday with a Quds-2 missile.
