Yemen’s Houthi group claimed a drone attack on a refinery in the Saudi capital Riyadh on Thursday morning, which Saudi state media said did not affect petroleum supplies. The Iran-aligned Houthi movement targeted a Saudi Aramco refinery in Riyadh using three Samad-3 drones, its military spokesman Yahya Sarea said on Friday. Six Samad-1 drones were also fired at Aramco facilities in the Saudi cities of Jizan and Abha.

The attack caused a small fire in Riyadh that was controlled and did not result in any injuries or casualties, Saudi state news agency SPA reported early on Friday, citing an energy ministry official.

“The refinery’s operations and supplies of petroleum and its derivatives were not affected,” the statement said. It did not specify where the attack originated from. The world’s top oil exporter has faced frequent missile and drone assaults by Yemen’s Houthis which have been battling a coalition led by Riyadh for seven years.
