An attack on a Saudi tanker by Yemen’s Houthis will not hit oil supplies, Saudi Arabia’s energy minister said on Wednesday, after the Iran-allied group said it had targeted a warship in response to an air strike that killed civilians, APA reports quoting Reuters.

The Western-backed, Saudi-led coalition which includes other Sunni Muslim states says the Houthis attacked the oil tanker off Yemen’s main port of Hodeidah on Tuesday.

The Houthis, however, say they targeted a coalition warship in response to an air strike on Hodeidah on Monday that killed at least a dozen civilians, including seven children.

“The terrorist attack ... will not affect economic activity or stall oil supplies,” Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said on Twitter.
