 Yemen's Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility for a series of drone attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. The move threatens to escalate violent conflict in the region.

 
World News has the story.
 
Seven drones reportedly carried out the attacks on the Saudi Arabian pumping stations.
 
A Houthi spokesman said the attacks were a response to Saudi aggression and that Houthi militants were prepared to widen the scope of military operations against Saudi Arabia and other countries involved in the coalition. 
 
Yemen's government strongly condemned the Houthi drone attacks, saying they were directly incited by Iran.
 
The government warned that Iran-backed Houthis have become a real threat to regional and global security, and labeled the group's military activities as terror acts.
