BAGHDAD: The Iraqi Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Sunday condemning the new attacks in Saudi Arabia that targeted energy facilities.
According to Xinhua news agency, the ministry "reiterated its stance calling for the adoption of conversation to resolve these activities between the parties to the issue, as discussion ensures mechanisms for all parties to avoid further losses." Earlier in the day, Yemen's Houthi group claimed responsibility for overnight attacks in Saudi Arabia that targeted vital energy facilities, including Aramco oil refineries.
Yemen has been engulfed in civil war since late 2014, when the Iran-backed Houthi militia seized control of northern provinces and drove President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's Saudi-backed administration out of the capital Sanaa. In the next year, the Saudi-led coalition intervened to help Yemen's government.
