MBS tells Trump Saudi 'willing and able' to respond to attacks | Al Jazeera |

The Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, received a phone call from U.S. president Donald Trump after attacks on two Saudi oil facilities set up by Yemenite rebels Houthi. The news was announced by the official news agency of Riad, Spa.

According to a statement by the Saudi embassy in Washington, DC, Trump told MBS that the US was ready to cooperate with the kingdom to protect its security in the wake of the drone attacks.

In the phone call, Trump also told the crown prince the attacks hurt the US and global economies, the SPA said in an Arabic-language statement

The Houthis, who have been fighting a Saudi-UAE-led coalition in an ongoing civil war in Yemen since 2015, took responsibility for the early morning attacks, which involved 10 drones and caused fires at the facilities at Abqaiq, the world's largest oil processing complex, and Khurais, a major oilfield.
