    (ANSAmed) - DUBAI, MAY 14 - Saudi Arabia on Tuesday denounced a drone attack against one of its pipelines, the Associated Press reports. The attack was claimed by Yemeni Houthi rebels who in this way sent a message to Riyadh to induce Saudi authorities to ''stop the aggression'' in Yemen.

    According to broadcaster al Masira, a mouthpiece of Houthi insurgents, the drone attack against Saudi oil pipelines was carried out to ''respond to crimes committed every day'' by Saudis ''against the Yemeni population''. According to Saudi authorities, the attacks took place in three different regions of the kingdom - eastern provinces on the Gulf, in the Yanbu district on the Red Sea and in the area of the capital Riyadh in the districts of Dudaymi and Afif. These attacks come two days after announced ''sabotage acts'' attributed to unspecified foreign entities against Saudi oil tankers, along with a Norwegian and an UAE tankers in the Gulf of Oman near the Hormuz Strait.(ANSAmed).
