Arab coalition accuses Iran of attacking oil facilities in Saudi Arabia

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Arab coalition fighting in Yemen, led by Saudi Arabia, has accused Iran of assaulting oil facilities located in the kingdom. This was reported on September 16 by RIA with reference to the official representative of the coalition Turki al-Maliki.

The Hussite Yemeni rebels, against whom the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia are fighting, said that it was they who attacked with the help of drones.

According to al-Maliki, the investigation shows that the weapons used to attack the facilities in Abkayk and Khurais are Iranian, therefore, the Husites’s allegations have no basis. However, no evidence was provided. Iran’s Foreign Ministry has already called such allegations false.

On September 15, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Iran of drones attacking Saudi oil facilities. According to him, Iran launched an “unprecedented attack on world energy supplies.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry urged the United States not to rush into statements about who is behind the attacks on the refinery. The discussion of response force measures in the department was called unacceptable.

On September 14, it became known that fires occurred at two oil refineries in Saudi Arabia due to drones attacks on Saturday night . The attack was carried out by enterprises owned by the state oil and gas company Saudi Aramco in the areas of Abigail in the east of the country and Khurais east of the capital of Riyadh.
