The spokesman stated, “Our attacks will continue against Saudi Arabia as long as the aggression and blockade on our nation continue,”

The Houthi rebels have stepped up cross-border attacks against Saudi towns and oil facilities recently. Most of the interventions were foiled by the Saudi-led alliance forces.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels carried out another attack on Saudi Arabian soil on Tuesday. According to the rebels’ claim, the attack on the King Khalid airbase of Mushayat city occurred at the exact location. Saudi Arabia, however, denied the claim of the Houthi rebels, saying the explosive-laden drone had been destroyed. In recent days, there have been various attacks on Saudi oil companies allegedly by Houthi rebels, which has also affected the prices of fuel internationally.
