Yemen: Suspected Houthi attack on oil facilities in Marib April 4

Yemen Alerte de sécurité

Houthi rebel group suspected of attacking oil pumping station in Marib (Ma’rib governorate) April 4; further attacks likely

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/4/2020, 10h00 until 8/4/2020, 10h00 (Asia/Aden). COUNTRY/REGION Ma’rib (Ma’rib province)

Event

On Saturday, April 4, suspected Houthi rebels conducted an attack on oil infrastructure in Marib (Ma'rib governorate), causing significant damage. The damage was largely inflicted on a pipeline owned by the Safer oil company, a government-controlled entity. The company issued a statement saying that the pipeline targeted in the attack was not currently in operation. Further attacks by Houthi rebels are likely as the region remains volatile.

Context

Yemen is engaged in a complex and deadly conflict, ongoing since Houthi rebels entered 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

Due to poor security conditions, many Western governments strongly advise their citizens against all travel to Yemen. Travel to the country should only be considered with proper security protocols in place. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
