Qatar’s Al Jazeera shared footage of a satellite showing a Saudi oil station in a Yemeni drone attack.

According to Al Jazeera, the images were taken during a raid on a Saudi Arabia pumping station located about 330 kilometers west of the capital, Riyadh.

An image analysis shows that the attack has generated crude oil flow over an estimated 1,000 square meters.

Officials have not yet commented on the footage, but sources linked to the Saudi government confirmed on Tuesday that pumping station 9 was also targeted by drone attacks. The stations extend along the main east-west pipeline, which runs across the peninsula from the Abqaiq oil field in the east to the oil terminal at Yanbu on the Red Sea coast.

The Yemeni Army claimed responsibility for the operation. The attack came “in response to pre-existing actions and blockade of our peoples and are prepared to make the attacks more unique and harsh,” said an official according to Al Masirah TV.

According to state agency IASD SABA, the rebels plan to attack other strategic points in the kingdom, including military posts and strategic locations in Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.

Since the beginning of 2015, militant forces led by exiled President Mansur Hadi have been fighting with soldiers from the Yemeni Army & Popular Committees.
