Oil plants were attacked by drones

factoriesOver the weekend, Saudi Arabia faced two big issues attacks. Two large oil refineries fell victim attack by drones resulting in a dramatic reduction in production.

According information, Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks in Yemen. On Saturday morning, the perpetrators used ten unmanned aircraft (drones) and carried out attacks that caused a major fire at a large oil rig.

The targets of the attacks were factories Abqaiq and Khurais. It is estimated that about 50% of production (about 5,7 million barrels per day) has been disrupted by the fire. However, Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz said there are enough stocks to meet customer needs.

The American government blamed it directly Iran. The Foreign Minister of USA tweeted that Iran had made an unprecedented attack on oil refineries supplying many countries around the world.

He also called on all states publicly condemn the Iranian attacks. "The United States will work with partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain satisfactory and that Iran is held accountable for its attacks," he said.

For its part, Iran has denied the allegations.

Houthi guerrillas often use drones for many things. They can be used to spy on their targets or launch grenade-like ammunition.

After the attack, oil reached its highest level in four months.
