Fire erupts at Saudi Arabia’s Jizan petroleum products platform after Yemeni boat attack

A fire has broken out near a floating platform of an oil distribution station in Saudi Arabia’s southern region of Jizan, after Saudi forces purportedly destroyed two explosive-laden boats believed to have been launched by Yemeni fighters.

The Saudi Ministry of Energy, in a statement carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA), said on Friday it dealt with the blaze.

Other than the damage caused by the fire to the floating hoses in the platform, no injuries were reported, the statement added.

The purported bomb-laden boat attack came as the Saudi-led coalition involved in a devastating military campaign against Yemen claimed on Thursday that it had thwarted a Yemeni drone strike.
