    The Facts

    • Yemen's Houthi rebels reportedly launched a barrage of drone and missile attacks on Sun. at targets across Saudi Arabia.

    • Saudi-state media said that a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, a water desalination plant, an oil facility and a power station were targeted, but no casualties were reported.


    The Spin

    Pro-establishment narrative

    This is but the latest in a string of terrorist attacks perpetrated by Houthi rebels, in clear violation of international law. Saudi Arabia and its allies have tried to negotiate peace, but all efforts have been rejected. The Houthis are a terrorist group that doesn't represent Yemen's legitimate government, and must be held accountable.

    Establishment-critical narrative

    There cannot be peace in Saudi Arabia or Yemen until the Saudis and Emiratis' brutal war and blockade is ended. The two nations are conducting war crimes in Yemen and the Houthis' resistance is just as legitimate as the resistance in Ukraine.
