Yemeni rebel drone strike knocks out half of Saudi oil production

In Yemen, the Houthi rebels are fighting to liberate their country from Saudi influence. Saudi Arabia has killed over 100,000 people in Yemen, until Sep 14 with impunity. On Sep 14, Houthi rebels replicated a favorite US tactic, using drones to bomb two facilities including the single most important oil processing facility in all Saudi Arabia. Over half of Saudi oil production was knocked out. Saudi officials say the extent of the damage will determine how long that oil if offline, and whether or not they can cover the global shortfall with reserves.
