SAUDI PIPE­LINES HIT BY DRONES

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - World -

Drone at­tacks claimed by Iran-aligned Ye­men rebels shut down one of Saudi Ara­bia’s ma­jor oil pipe­lines on Tues­day, fur­ther ratch­et­ing up Gulf ten­sions af­ter the mys­te­ri­ous sab­o­tage of sev­eral tankers. Two pump­ing sta­tions had been tar­geted early Tues­day on the East West Pipeline, able to pump five mil­lion bar­rels of oil a day from the oil-rich eastern prov­ince to a Red Sea ex­port ter­mi­nal. Ye­men’s Huthi rebels said they had tar­geted vi­tal in­stal­la­tions in Saudi Ara­bia.
