The Houthis said that they targeted a Saudi Aramco facility in Jeddah today, Thursday, with a missile, and attacked a military base in the south of the Kingdom, while the coalition confirmed that it destroyed a Houthi drone.
The Houthi spokesman, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said that they targeted the facilities of the Saudi Aramco oil company in Jeddah at dawn with a winged missile, “Quds 2”, indicating that the hit was accurate, as he put it.
He added – in a tweet on his Twitter page – that the group’s air force managed to hit a significant target at King Khalid base in Khamis Mushait.
He added that the attack was carried out by a K2 bomber drone, and he spoke of an accurate hitting the target.
The Houthi military spokesman indicated that the attack was a response to the escalation of those he described as enemies, and a continuation of “the siege and aggression.”

The coalition spokesman, Colonel Turki Al-Maliki, said, “The joint coalition forces were able, Thursday morning, to intercept and destroy an explosive unmanned aircraft launched by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia,” adding that the aircraft was “deliberately launched to target civilian objects and civilians.”
