UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The leadership of the Shiite movement Ansar Allah (Hussites) is proposing to Saudi Arabia to end the senseless war in Yemen. Such a statement, as Al Mayadeen broadcast , was made on Saturday by a member of the political bureau of the movement, Mohammed al-Bahiti.
“The balance of power in the conflict has changed in favor of Yemen, and we are telling the Saudi kingdom that concluding peace is in his interest,” he stressed. According to a representative of the Hussites, “if Riyadh stops military operations and lifts the blockade, the rebel forces will no longer strike in areas located in the depths of Saudi Arabia.”
On Saturday, General Yahya Saria, a spokesman for the Hussite armed forces command, said “of the largest operation carried out against Saudi Arabia since the outbreak of aggression in 2015.”
According to him, during the attack, carried out with the help of drones, attacks were made on objects at the Sheyba oil field, owned by the state-owned company of Saudi Arabia Saudi Aramco. It is located 10 km from the border with the UAE in the Rub al-Khali desert.
According to the general, an oil refinery and a strategic storage of 1 billion barrels of oil are located in this area. “This attack was a legitimate response to the crimes that continue to be committed in the land of Yemen by the forces of the Arabian coalition,” Saria said.
According to a Reuters source in the Saudi oil industry, drone strikes had a limited effect, resulting in a small fire at a gas processing plant, which was quickly localized.
However, Saudi Arabian Minister of Energy, Industry, and Mineral Resources Khaled bin Abdel Aziz al-Faleh said that “the attack on Saudi Aramco’s oil facilities was designed to disrupt global supplies of raw materials.” According to the minister, the Hussite sabotage threatens the stability of the global economy.
The conflict in Yemen has been ongoing since August 2014. The military confrontation intensified after the invasion of the coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia in March 2015, which sided with the troops of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
