A Huthi military spokesman urged “all foreign companies operating in Saudi Arabia, as well as our brothers inside Hijaz and Najd residents in all Saudi regions, to stay away from vital military and economic installations from being targeted by the Yemeni army”. The same day, the Saudi-led coalition announced that it had destroyed “two bomb-laden Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs)” and intercepted “a bomb-laden UAV” all launched by the Huthis. A Saudi energy official subsequently confirmed that the former operation “occurred in close proximity to a floating offloading platform that belongs to the Jizan oil products terminal [and] resulted in a limited fire on the platform’s floating hoses”.
