drone attacks on Saudi cities
Yemen's Houthi rebels have claimed drone strikes in five key cities, including the Saudi capital Riyadh.

Al Jazeera reported this information on Saturday.

The Iranian-backed Houthi fighters told the media that they had carried out 14 drone strikes in several cities, including the Saudi port city of Jeddah, yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Saudi state news agency SPA said Saudi-led forces had attacked 13 Houthi positions in Yemen.

A spokesman for the Houthi military, Yahya Sari, told a news conference that military bases in the Saudi capital Riyadh, port cities Jeddah, Ava, Jizan, and Najran and the Aramco oil refinery in Jeddah had been attacked.

However, the report states that he mistakenly named the place.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the Houthis' demands, but the news agency SPA reported that the Houthi arsenal, air defense, and drone communications systems had been attacked in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, as well as in the White and Marib provinces.

According to the United Nations, more than 233,000 people have been killed in the conflict in Yemen. Attempts by the United Nations and the United States to establish a ceasefire have failed.
