Antony Blinken condemns Houthi launched attack on Saudi oil facilities
Washington: The United States on Friday condemned the Houthi launched attacks on civilian infrastructure and facilities in several Saudi Arabian cities.
In a statement, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said: "We strongly condemn this week’s multiple Houthi terrorist attacks on Saudi Arabia, including today’s that struck an Aramco facility in Jeddah, which is clearly civilian infrastructure."
" At a time when the parties should be focused on de-escalation and bringing needed life-saving relief to the Yemeni people ahead of the holy month of Ramadan, the Houthis continue their destructive behavior and reckless terrorist attacks striking civilian infrastructure" he said.
Blinken said the US will continue to work with Saudi partners.
This is the second attack on the #Aramco facility in #Jeddah by the #Houthi militia in less than a week. This escalation comes in light of a great international need for energy imports and a significant increase in the price of #oil and #gas.#KSA #Iran #Yemen #USA #IRGC #Israel https://t.co/AIyKVkr73S pic.twitter.com/FPj27cNAkP— Eva J.

" We will continue to work with our Saudi partners to strengthen their defenses while also seeking to advance a durable end to the conflict, improve lives, and create the space for Yemenis to determine their own future collectively," he said.
