Attacking Saudi Oil Fields
By Micah Halpern

Saturday September 4, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

There was an attack on the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. A missile was shot and intercepted over Saudi Arabia's oil-rich eastern region. The Saudi ministry of defense reported news of the attack.

The missile was intercepted over a suburb of the city of Dammam. The falling shrapnel from the destroyed missile fell and injured two Saudi children and caused light damage to 14 houses. This news came in a statement carried by Saudi Arabia’s state news agency SPA.

Photos on state media showed broken glass and the damaged entrances of several residential buildings.

Conventional wisdom blames the attack on Iran-aligned Houthi forces. There has been no immediate claim of responsibility in Houthi-run media.

The coalition of Western powers policing the region report that they have intercepted and destroyed ballistic missiles heading towards Jazan and Najran in the southern part of the country. They earlier reported the interception of three explosive-laden drones headed towards the Saudi Kingdom.

Iran sponsored tensions are increasing. It is just a matter of time before one of these missiles gets through.
