Saudi Arabia Blames Houthis For Blast On Oil Tanker Off Jeddah (Video, Map)


UPDATE: Saudi sources claimed that the explosiotn at the tanker near Jeddah was caused by a water-born improvised explosive device launched by the Houthis.


An explosion hit a fuel tanker off Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea port city of Jeddah, which is also known as the distribution center for oil giant Saudi Aramco.

The BW Group said that the explosion erupted after the Singapore-flagged BW Rhine was hit by “an external source”, but all 22 sailors on board received no injures. The BW Group warned that it was possible some oil had leaked out from the site of the incident.

About three weeks ago, on November 25, a Greek-managed oil tanker was damaged in an attack on a Saudi petroleum terminal located near the Red Sea city of Jeddah. Col. Turki Al-Malki, a spokesman for the coalition, said the tanker was hit by shrapnel resulting from an attack by the Yemeni Houthis using a water-born improvised explosive device. The spokesman claimed that the WBIED was intercepted. Nevertheless, the tanker’s operator, the Athens-based TMS Tankers, said the Maltese-flagged Agrari received a direct hit.

A few days earlier, on November 23, the Yemeni Houthis struck the Jeddah distribution station with a Quds-2 cruise missile. According to the Yemeni movement, the missile was developed and produced by its Missile Forces. Nonetheless, the Houthi successes in missile and drone development during a total naval and air blockade would hardly be possible without Iranian help.

The series of unfortunate events has been pursuing Saudi Arabia not only in the Red Sea, but also in Yemen. After the recent series of setbacks of pro-Saudi forces in their battles with the Houthis in the province of Marib, tensions between the UAE-backed and Saudi-backed groups in the south of Yemen once again increased.

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) is now sabotaging its de-escalation agreement with the Saudi-backed government led by Mansur Hadi and based in the port city of Aden. The further setbacks of Saudi proxies in Marib will likely lead to another escalation between the STC and Hadi government. The UAE-backed group uses the weakness of pro-Saudi forces to establish its own rule in the south.

  • On December 13, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 4 airstrikes on the Madghal area;
  • On December 13, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 5 airstrikes on the Maheliyah area;
  • On December 13, Ansar Allah attacked positions of Saudi-led forces in the Asahel area;
  • On December 13, clashes between Ansar Allah and Saudi-led forces were reported in the souh of Tal’ah and Rashaha Sharqi areas;
  • On December 13, Saudi-led coalition Apaches conducted airstrikes on the Kitaf area;
  • On December 13, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted airstrikes on the Haradh area;
  • On December 13, the Liaison and Coordination Officers’ Operations Room (loyal to Ansar Allah) reported 215 ceasefire violations in al-Hudaydah during the past 24 hours;
  • On December 14, UAE-backed STC forces ceased retreating from Zinjibar town and giving government buildings to joint forces despite the deal with the Saudi-backed government.

Dastardly Houthis, they should force the tankers to sit in port and slowly rot until they leak like the Saudis did to them at port Hodeidah. Didn’t they get the rulebook that you are not allowed to fight back?

Vox Populi

The Saudis are in a quagmire of their own making and the Yemeni Ansarallah and their military allies are getting better weaponry and employing 21st century asymmetrical warfare tactics against a inept Bedouin desert tribal press ganged Saudis rag tag force and ill motivated mercenaries. The Ansarallah have made both the Red Sea and Persian Gulf Saudi ports unsafe with new suicide drone boats and missiles. The Yemeni tactics are evolving while Saudis are regressing in every manner. Yemen has doomed the Saudis, despite total western and Zionist support.


Zero emissions by 2050?Which fkwit came up with that conclusion?0 will never happen,ever (period)

Lone Ranger

They calculated with 500million people in total…
That explains it.
The UN predicts that U.S. population will be around 60million in 2025 with a GDP similar that of Italy…
Something to think about…
Democide is out in the open and very few do actually notice it…


Is Baba Vanga working on UN now?

Lone Ranger

Georgia Guide Stones…


Those stones remind me of Halloween and Crampus, if that plan was for real, did they need to make statues of it so everybody talk about it?

Lone Ranger

Yes, because according to their modus operandi they have to tell you what they will do in advance and than they do it.
That way they can say see we told you in advance and you didn’t stop us, that gives as the right to do what we want with you.
Thats why they are corrupting everything not only culture, morals the DNA, the mindset, the language, its also spiritual, they know they are evil and if the good side isnt strong enough to stop them that gives them the greenlight to destroy us.
Endgoal being total genocide and the elite killing eachother as well, than the few elite who survives merges with an AI to live forever inside a qvantum computer, sounds nuts?
It is.
But these are the people who try to rule us.
But we have a good chance stopping them.
Resistance is Victory.


saudi core infrastructure needs to be taken out entirely and if the saudis dont stop their war the desalination plants should be hit all their oil infrastructure should be leveled and all their regime infrastructure from palaces to hideouts of the rats of al saud should all be hit either that or they stop the war soon and retreat because retreat is the only way they can survive this

Potato Man

They should hit petro Rabigh next time just to send the message to some moronic fat fuks.

Making Saudi shipping lanes insecure is even more lethal as the Saudis import 100% food and all supplies and if the international shipping lines increase their insurance premiums o refuse to go to Saudi ports, the hard pressed Saudi economy will simply collapse. The Ansarallah are employing evolving ingenious asymmetrical warfare tactics against a totally inept foe, unable to deal with a canny adversary despite seven years of futile attempts to subdue Yemen..

Potato Man

No no no, that’s what fat fuks in US/EU/Zion and Wahhabi cun7 wants buddy…the Houthis are not terrorists like Wahhabi+Zion+West block and they shouldn’t follow their path.
Attacking ship lanes is not smart move as EU+US would find a reason to attack Houthis more and openly with backing of their dogs.

The Saudi economy is bad as it is, they live on oil/gas price. Houthis are smart, they are saying in a way if you attack us we break you…when a country leave golab market (oil/gas) other countries look for different supplier…Iraq/Iraq/Russia/etc would take up Saudi place, Saudi trying to come back to the market after that would be much harder.

“Saudi economy shrinks 7% while unemployment hits record high, the oil sector of the world’s largest crude exporter shrank 5.3 percent from April through June as it was knocked sideways by the coronavirus pandemic that gutted global crude demand this year”.
Even before Covid 19 KSA had problems…

Read this report,


if they can clsoe down the rabigh bay refinery, it would be part of the war the saudis are waging against Yemen and it would hurt the saudi economy. another option is to stop oil transports through the bab al mandab strait. anything that thwarts the saudi economi and bab-al-mandab is a sure thing.

Potato Man

Houthis can shut down many Saudis refinery and ofc it would hurt Saudis wallet but not for long and Houthis are not looking for all-out war with Saudis which would include US dogs.

Right now it is the worse time for war and that’s what the US and West want the most. Saudis are in shit, Muslims (Sunni countries) lost trust, and economy Saudi is in worse shape than it seems before Covid. Houthis are much better kill off UAE/SA/Zion troops in Yemen and let Saudi know they can kill them off if they start all out war.

Another thing is Saudi king and his son the Zion’s dog are not popular among their people anymore. Osama bin Laden was one of those people that didn’t liked what was happening in KSA and after what he did Saudi king went ape shit and let CIA/MI6 do the job and shut others down in Saudi.
Saudi is run my NGOs and expats and their people are stupid but when they lost their good life they gonna blame it on someone. It is gonna happen sooner or later.

The Houthis just have to wait and stand on their ground and soon, the Zion-US-Wahhabi block fall soon. It is gonna happen but we have to wait and they have to make sure don’t play in their hands.


the saudis had to borrow to cover the dividends they promised when aramco was partially sold to the market, mostly saudi investors since no western dittoes were tempted to risk their cash in the ipo mbs put to the market. any shortfall in income for the saudis will be catastrophic. rabaigh bay in the red sea is an excellent target hitting them saudis where it hurts the most.

Lone Ranger

Gulf of Tonkin part II…?


its worse than that saudi is falling apart from inside


if iran is forced to kill americans out of west asia than saudi arabia will not exist anymore neither will uae nor any other american lackeys because it will be them who will have forced us to kill americans and therefore they will face a worse fate than america


Great,i hope it was a missile and there are more.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Houthi’s are now COP 21 eco warriors.


Frankly, the Saudi criminals are a blot on humanity and need to be erased.


just like the jews in palestine – having forfeited the right to coexist with the human race.

Icarus Tanović

They have deserved a atomic bomb equivalent to one dropped on Hiroshima on Riyadh.

Potato Man

In the wake of an explosion at a Saudi fuel transport terminal, a senior Yemeni official has heaped heavy sarcasm on the kingdom over its failure to protect its ports, saying Yemen, if asked, may consider helping safeguard them.
