Houthis claim targeting oil facilities in Jizan January 29; no immediate confirmation of attacks

TIMEFRAME expected from 29/1/2020, 12h00 until 30/1/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Riyadh). COUNTRY/REGION Jizan

Event

Yemen's Houthi rebels announced on Wednesday, January 29, that they had carried out operations against Saudi targets near the Yemeni border, including Saudi Aramco facilities in Jizan, Abha (AHB) and Jizan (GIZ) airports, and Khamis Mushait military base with "a large number of rockets and drones." The operations were reportedly in retaliation for recent Saudi air strikes in Yemen. The group did not specify when this attack took place; there has been no confirmation of the alleged attack as of 18:00 (local time) on Wednesday. Details are still emerging.

Similar incidents are possible over the near term.

Context

Yemen is engaged in a complex and deadly conflict, ongoing since Houthi rebels entered into a civil war with the Yemeni government, supported by a Saudi-led coalition, in 2015. The Saudi-led coalition has carried out thousands of airstrikes in Yemen since its intervention began. Hundreds of Yemeni civilians have been killed in the strikes, which have hit schools, hospitals, and markets, in addition to Houthi militant positions and personnel. In total, more than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the fighting and some 3 million have been displaced.

Advice

Individuals in the region are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
