On the evening of 7 March 2021, armed drones and ballistic missiles were launched at oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern province. According to the Energy Ministry, an explosives-laden drone struck an oil storage facility in the port city of Ras Tanura, and shrapnel from a missile fell near a residential area in the city of Dhahran. Additionally, a ballistic missile was fired toward Saudi Aramco facilities in al-Khobar. There were no reports of damage or casualties due to the attacks. Yemen-based Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks, but did not provide evidence to support their claim. Saudi authorities allege that the missile and drone attacks originated from the Persian Gulf, indicating possible Iranian involvement in the strikes.
