The Saudi air force is attacking rebel strongholds in northern Yemen, after rebels killed two Saudi security personnel on the border, it has been reported.

It is unlikely the attacks will have a major impact on the Saudi oil and gas industry, although no immediate comment has been released by either Yemen or Riyadh.

The Saudi-owned London based website Elaph has reported the news, also claiming that Saudi ground forces are moving towards the border area.

There has been a growing concern from Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter, over the instability and militancy in Yemen, which is facing a growing threat from Al Qaeda.
