Saudi Arabia says oil pipeline was attacked by drones

Source: The Hill

Saudi Arabia said Tuesday that one of its oil pipelines had come under attack by armed drones launched by Houthi rebels, the first such attack deep within Saudi territory.

The Associated Press reported that Saudi officials said the attack occurred at two sites on the country's east-west pipeline, which traverses the middle of the country. The attack involved several drones launched from inside Saudi Arabia, according to reports, though the weapons capabilities on the drones were not immediately clear.

Oil prices including Brent crude reportedly rose on news of the attacks, which a Saudi official denounced as "cowardly." A spokesman for the Houthi rebels, who are engaged in a civil war in Yemen against the Saudi-backed government, called the attack a milestone for the Houthis' cause.

“This is a message to Saudi Arabia: Stop your aggression,” spokesman Mohammed Abdel-Salam told the AP. “Our goal is to respond to the crimes they are committing everyday against the Yemeni people.”

2. Pardon me, but BULLSHIT!!!!! This is a huge miscalculation on "our" part.

Of course, these Rich Warmongers are not in it to win it. So what if we get a little nuked? It will work out for them, they think. I pray that something unexpected arises and defeats them. And ASAP.

4. Or the hold that the rulers have is even more tenuous

than we think.

My understanding is that the government is loathed and feared in S.A.
