A Riyadh oil refinery caught fire after a drone strike on the facility. Yemen-based Huthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attack. Saudi energy ministry strongly condemned the "cowardly attack". "This behaviour shows an utter lack of concern for the safety of the civilian population either working or living near the sites," State Department deputy spokeswoman Jalina Porter said while expressing deep concern over the attack.
