Saudi Arabia decides to retaliate back hard
RIYADH - Saudi Arabia decides to retaliate back hard to the drone strikes against the Kingdom.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has announced that it has retaliation plans for the drone attacks on its oil refineries, which have been claimed by the Iranian-backed Houthi militants in Yemen.
In a call with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman on Saturday, United States President Donald Trump offered support for Saudi self-defense.
According to the Houthis, the dawn attack on Saturday was carried out by ten unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) launched from Yemen and targeted the Aramco oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais.
The largescale attack caused major explosions and forced Aramco to cease production at the two facilities. With oil production suspended, Aramco *lost half link its crude output (5.7 million barrels per day), leading to a five percent reduction in global oil supply.
