Houti terrorists have attacked two pumping stations in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday morning, according to the energy minister Khalid Al-Falih, like reported by arabnews.com.
Drones attacked two pumping stations of East-West pipeline, which carries Saudi oil from oil fields in the Eastern Province to the port of Yanbu on the west coast.
The attacks caused a fire at station number 8, which Al-Falih said was controlled after causing limited damage.
No one was hurt in the attacks.
Saudi Aramco has closed down the pipelines, while they assess the damage and repair the pumping station to get it back to normal operation, Saudi Press Agency reported.
But the company said its supply to customers would not be impacted.
The Kingdom condemned the attack and the recent sabotage act in the Arabian Gulf, threatening oil output.
“Recent attacks in the Gulf and Saudi Arabia are aimed at the world and not just the Kingdom,” Al-Falih.
Bahrain has condemned the attack.
Oil prices rose after the attacks. Brent crude futures were at $70.79 a barrel at 1035 GMT, up 56 percents or 0.80%.
