The said attack has targeted the same oil depot that they attacked in recent days. The Saudi state Tv only provided the information that a hostile operation targeted the depot while Saudi Aramco company did not give any response.

Meanwhile, the F1 has said that the position at the moment is not clear and they are waiting to get details from the authorities for further action.

The rebels also claimed to attack other parts of Riyadh as well.
