A Saudi-led retaliation on the Yemeni capital of Sanaa carried out on Tuesday is reported to have killed as many as 20 people.
Houthi rebels have carried out a number of attacks targeting oil and gas operations in the Middle East in recent years.
Most notably drones attacked Saudi Aramco’s Abqaiq facility in September 2019, significantly disrupting operations.
The Yemeni rebels also seized a UAE-flagged cargo ship at the beginning of the year. The Houthis claimed it was transporting weapons and have refused to release it.
