A pump jack is seen at sunrise near BakersfieldBy Barani Krishnan NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil jumped about 5 percent on Thursday, rallying a second straight day, after air strikes in Yemen by Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies sparked fears of a bigger Middle East battle that could disrupt world crude supplies. The military operation against Houthi rebels, who have driven the president from Yemen's capital Sanaa, has not affected oil facilities of major Gulf producers. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a phone conversation with his Iranian counterpart, called for an "immediate ceasefire." Pakistan, a Riyadh ally far away from the conflict, promised a "strong response" to any threat to Saudi integrity. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry touched on the conflict with Iran's foreign minister before talks on Thursday on Tehran's nuclear program.
