Twin blasts rock Riyadh: Yemeni media

Tehran Yemeni forces targeted Saudi Arabia Aramco Tehran Yemeni forces targeted Saudi Arabia Aramco and its defense ministry on Wednesday, the Yemeni TV Channel 'Almasirah' reported.

The Yemeni Air Force targeted Wednesday morning Abha airport in Asir and Aramco in Jizan of Saudi Arabia by drone raids, Qasif1, according to Almasirah.

Saudi Aramco, officially the Saudi Arabian Oil Company, most popularly known just as Aramco, is a Saudi Arabian national petroleum and natural gas company based in Dhahran.

The Abha airport has stopped its flights following the drone airstrike in Asir, Almasirah quoted a military source as saying.

These strikes show the qualitative development of Yemen's air force, responding to the aggression on Yemen over four years.

Earlier in the day, a Saudi military supply camp was hit by domestically-made Badr-1, ballistic missile in south of Jizan.

The missile force bombarded the Saudi Defense Ministry and other targets in Riyadh with 2H volcano rockets, Almasirah wrote on its Twitter account.
