Special satellite images showed the damage caused by the 9 th Ramadan operation by the Yemeni army forces at Saudi Aramco’s No. 8 Aramco Station

The pictures, broadcasted on Qatar’s Al-Jazeera television, showed on Sunday a 4-meter-long pipeline crash and an oil barrage that covered 1,000 square meters the day after the attack.

Satellite images revealed that the booby-trapped aircraft, according to the channel, targeted the pipe directly and accurately

The Saudi oil minister announced on the day of the operation that the damage caused by the operation carried out by seven limited march aircraft , although it led to the suspension of the head of pumping oil

The operation came in response to the crimes committed by the coalition against the Yemenis and the suffocating siege imposed by it for more than four years

In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.

Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
