TEHRAN (IQNA) –  Spokesman for Yemeni army Brigadier General Yahya Saree said the Saudi regime has no other way than stopping its aggression on Yemen and ending the blockade on the country.


In a brief statement on Monday, Saree said the attacks on Saudi oil facilities Saturday were carried out by Yemeni drones.

He said drones equipped with different types of engines, including jet engines, were used in the attacks.

“All of Saudi Arabia is within the range of our (weapons and drones),” he said, adding that Riyadh must reconsider its calculations and put an end to the aggression and blockade.

Yemen’s drone strikes on Saturday hit Saudi Arabia’s two oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais.

The attacks, which hit the world’s biggest oil-processing facility, cut the Arab kingdom’s daily oil output by 5.7 million barrels, leading to a halt in about 50 percent of the Arab kingdom’s crude and gas production, causing a record surge in oil prices.

Yemeni forces regularly target positions inside Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Saudi war, which began in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall the country's Riyadh-allied former regime and crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The Western-backed military aggression, coupled with a naval blockade, has killed tens of thousands of Yemenis, destroyed the country’s infrastructure and led to a massive humanitarian crisis.
