Oil Tumbles After Saudis Declare End To Yemen Aerial Bombing Campaign

Oil Tumbles After Saudis Declare End To Yemen Aerial Bombing Campaign (ZeroHedge, April 21, 2015):

Saudi Arabia said its campaign of airstrikes in Yemen have succeeded in removing threats to the kingdom and other regional countries, bringing to an end Operation “Decisive Storm.” As Bloomberg reports, the Saudi Defense Ministry said a coalition of mostly Sunni Muslim nations has “successfully eliminated the threat to the security of Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries,” by destroying the heavy weaponry and ballistic missiles held by the Shiite Houthi rebels. This comes one day after Gulf envoys told The United Nations that Yemen strikes won’t end soon. Saudi Arabia hopes to restart a Yemeni political process and will begin “Operation New Hope,” which appears to mean Saudi National Guard ground troops.
