Sudan asserts to keep its troop in Saudi-led Yemen campaign

The facility reportedly belonged to the oil giant Saudi Aramco.

A video on the TV station's Twitter page said the ballistic missile was sent by the mainly Shia Islamic Houthi rebel movement in Yemen, which is fighting the Saudi-backed Yemeni government. Houthis reported the attack on their website saying dozens of Sudanese soldiers had been killed and armoured vehicles destroyed.

"Saudi Arabia and UAE are very anxious about Iran's influence, so they are seeking to keep some military presence on the Yemeni coasts even if the civil war ends", said the official who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter.

The coalition has launched thousands of air strikes in Yemen which have hit schools, markets and hospitals, killing hundreds of people - though it says it does not target civilians.

Last month, the war took its first casualty in Riyadh after a man was killed by debris from a barrage of incoming missiles shot down by the Saudis over the capital.

The company is building a 400,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Jizan, part of a new economic city on the Red Sea, which is expected to become fully operational in 2019. More than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the conflict and millions in the impoverished country have been pushed to the brink of starvation.

Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of backing the Houthis, a charge Iran has denied.

" The Minister stated Sudan's firm stance on its participation in the coalition forces and its support to the efforts to restoring stability in brotherly Yemen", said the foreign ministry spokesperson Gaffar Sumi Toto in a statement released after the meeting. Turki al-Maliki, said that at 7:40 am local time, air defense systems were able to detect an unidentified object in the direction of Abha International Airport and was dealt with accordingly.
