Ye­men rebel drone at­tack tar­gets oil field

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Drones launched by Ye­men’s Houthi rebels at­tacked a mas­sive oil and gas field deep inside Saudi Ara­bia’s sprawl­ing desert on Saturday, caus­ing what the king­dom de­scribed as a “lim­ited fire” in the sec­ond such re­cent at­tack on its cru­cial en­ergy in­dus­try.

The at­tack on the Shay­bah oil field, which pro­duces some 1 mil­lion bar­rels of crude oil a day near the king­dom’s bor­der with the United Arab Emi­rates, again shows the reach of the Houthis’ drone pro­gram. Shay­bah sits some 750 miles from Houthi-con­trolled ter­ri­tory, un­der­scor­ing the rebels’ abil­ity to now strike at both na­tions.
