Drone attack by Yemeni Houthis on major Saudi oil facility and oilfield

Explosions and a huge fire erupted after a drone attack on the world’s largest oil processing facility at Abqaiq and the Khuras oil field in Saudi Arabia overnight Friday. Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels later took responsibility. The Saudi Interior Ministry said the state company Aramco had brought the fires under control without further comment. Abqaiq, 60 km southwest of Dhahran in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, contains the world’s largest oil processing plant. Khurais, 190 km further southwest, holds the country’s second largest oilfield.

      Abbas… Hamas Thinks Small looking for Small Propaganda Victories. Drones will Not Alter the Balance of Power between Israel & Hamas. The Drones that Hamas Use Vulnerable, with No Jamming, No Onboard Weapons & No Stealth Capability to Evade Radar. Additionally, They are like Hamas being a Drone to Iran’s Shiia Regime……Hamas Drones are Low, Slow & Easily Removed!

    I think it is unlikely that the drones that made this attack came from Yemen. It is too far away. The facility is on the East Coast of Saudi Arabia in an area that has not been effected by the war in Yemen.

    A little salvo of let us say not more than 2-3 Tomahawks per location over the first 5 most important refineries and oil terminals of Iran will surely stop this craziness.
    Except if one likes to get droned every other week and does nothing ….

    Excellent. That whahabbi ideology is getting a good dose of its preaching. The world will be a better place without that sh*t sunni and Shia nonsense. Must say also that there a number of wonderful people in both sects

    Saudi Arabia Happy it Happens! 1. All About Driving Oil Prices Up & Helps America Against China Trade War. 2. Attacks on Iran Oil Facilities May Happen On Top Sanctions. 3. Gulf States Recommit Finance Coups in Mideast!
