An Aramco petroleum products distribution plant in Jeddah was attacked, the Saudi-led coalition said Sunday.
The attack led to a “limited fire” in one of the tanks, which was brought under control without injuries or casualties, according to the coalition's statement.
Earlier, Yemeni armed forces spokesperson Yahya Saree announced that the Sanaa forces have carried out Operation Break Siege II in Saudi Arabia in response to its coalition's escalation and blockade.
Saree also warned Riyadh of the repercussions of its blockade on Yemeni facilities and economic sectors, pledging that Sanaa carries out a military operation to break the unjust blockade. The operation, according to Saree, would include "sensitive targets the criminal enemy would never have thought of."

On Saturday, the head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, said, "The Saudis, the Emiratis, and the disloyal Yemeni hypocrites are nothing but executors of the US and British schemes.”
Al-Mashat added that "the ones behind this conspiracy are the Americans and the British taking aim at the Yemeni people," stressing that "the Saudis are the actual executors."
He pointed out that "it is the Yemeni people who foiled all the enemy's plots since the beginning of the aggression until today," stressing that "the practices of the coalition of aggression reflect the reality of this aggression and unravels its true ugly face."
The top Yemeni official maintained that "the level of hatred of the coalition of aggression is evident in its practices and insistence [on inflicting harm], not to mention that it revels in the siege of the Yemeni people at all levels."
In the same context, Ansar Allah Movement rejected on Saturday the invitation of the Gulf Cooperation Council for consultations in Riyadh. A member of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Muhammad Ali Al-Houthi, said that the Yemeni-Yemeni consultations were being held "as a prelude to dialogue leading to solutions" in Yemen, and "it is not useful to hold them after exploratory dialogues that spanned for years to no avail."
This comes after the Gulf Cooperation Council announced it would host Yemeni talks in Riyadh, but Ansar Allah stressed that the talks should take place in any neutral country not participating in the aggression against Yemen.
