Saudi Arabia intercepts two ballistic missiles fired towards Aramco facility by Houthis

  • Yemen's armed Houthi movement fired two ballistic missiles at a Saudi Aramco facility in the southern city of Jazan
  • No casualties or damage to property was reported

RIYADH: Yemen's armed Houthi movement fired two ballistic missiles at a Saudi Aramco facility in the southern city of Jizan on Monday, but Saudi news agency SPA said both projectiles were destroyed.
The Houthis' Al-Masirah TV said they had targeted a port belonging to the Saudi state oil giant.
SPA quoted the spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition as saying the two missiles were intercepted over Jazan and their debris fell on residential neighborhoods.
"There were no casualties or damages recorded as of the time of (our) statement," Colonel Turki al-Maliki said.
Aramco did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The company is building a 400,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Jazan, part of a new economic city on the Red Sea, and it is expected to become fully operational in 2019.
The United Nations says 10,000 people have died in the three-year-old war, and three out of four Yemenis need relief aid.
The coalition says the Houthis are armed and supported by Iran - charges the group and Tehran deny.Meanwhile,
