The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said it was investigating drone attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities on Saturday, and would confront "terrorist" threats to safeguard Saudi assets.

"Investigations are ongoing to determine the parties responsible for planning and executing these terrorist attacks," Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said in a statement.

The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition continues to adopt and implement necessary measures “to deal with such terrorist threats in order to safeguard national assets, international energy security and ensure stability of world economy,” he said.

The Saudi Interior Ministry said Saturday that the drone attacks on two Saudi Aramco facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais caused fires that the company's security team brought under control.
