Saudi oil refinery hit by drone attack

RIYADH (AFP) – A drone attack on an oil refinery in the Saudi capital caused a small fire but no disruption to supplies, officials said yesterday, as crude prices soar after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The act of “sabotage and terrorism” follows a series of similar attacks on Saudi facilities by Yemen’s Huthi rebels, who are fighting a coalition.

“The Riyadh oil refinery was attacked by a drone, resulting in a small fire that has been brought under control,” the Energy Ministry said, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.

“The attack did not result in any injury or death, nor was the supply of oil or its derivatives affected.”
