Riyadh, March 26, 2021, SPA -- An official spokesman at the Ministry of Energy said that today at 09:08 PM an attack with a projectile was made on the petroleum products distribution terminal in Jizan. The attack resulted in a fire in one of the terminal's tanks. The attack left no casualties.

The spokesman stressed that the Kingdom strongly condemns this cowardly attack against vital installations. The attack does not only target the Kingdom, but also petroleum exports, the stability of energy supply to the world, freedom of world trade, as well as the global economy.

It also affects maritime traffic and exposes coasts and territorial waters to serious environmental consequences.
