  • Saudi Arabia foils missile, drone attacks near Aramco HQ, refinery
Saudi Arabia foiled ballistic missile and booby-trapped drone attacks in the eastern province near Aramco’s headquarters and the cities of Najran and Jazan on September 4th. Yemen’s Houthis claimed responsibility for the attacks, in which ten drones and 6 ballistic missiles targeted the Aramco facilities and Jeddah, Jazan and Najran. Saudi air defenses intercepted and destroyed the missiles which led to a scattering of debris that slightly damaged 14 houses in the al-Dammam neighborhood. This is not the first time the Houthis have launched attacks against Aramco. While most have failed, the September 2019 attack on Aramco’s Abqaiq crude processing plant and Khurais oil field temporarily knocked out 5.7 million b/d and upset the markets.
