A spokesman for the Yemeni Army has confirmed that unmanned Yemeni aircrafts have attacked two Saudi oil refineries deep inside the country, hitting the Buqyaq and Kharis oil refineries in eastern Saudi Arabia.

Iran Press/Middle East: The Yemeni army spokesman also said the drone strikes were in response to the ongoing Saudi airstrikes and war crimes in Yemen, as well as the ongoing Saudi blockade of Yemen.

The spokesman also claimed the drone operation, codenamed 'balanced deterrence 2' was one of the most complicated airstrikes ever carried out by the Yemeni army deep inside Saudi Arabia, with as many as ten drones participating in the attack, Iran Press reported.

The Yemeni army spokesman also warned Saudi Arabia that Yemeni airstrikes will be expanded and many more targets will be hit if Riyadh continues with its war of aggression and total blockade of Yemen. 101/211
