UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Two US bases and one American ship in the Middle East are under the gun of the Iranian military, which will be hit in the event of hostilities, said the commander of the space forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Amir Ali Hajizadeh.
“Al-Udeid base (located in Qatar), az-Zafra base (located in the UAE) and one American ship in the Gulf of Oman are under the gun, and if we were answered by America, we would hit them,” Tasnim Hajizadeh quotes.
He noted that all American ships and bases, which are located within two thousand kilometers, are within the reach of Iranian missiles.
In turn, the Iranian Foreign Ministry called the statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Iran is behind the attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia a lie.
On Saturday night, fires occurred at two oil refineries in Saudi Arabia due to drone attacks.
They arose at enterprises owned by the state-owned oil and gas company Saudi Aramco in the districts of Abkaik in the east of the country and Khurais east of Riyadh. As a result, production of 5.7 million barrels of oil per day was suspended, which exceeds half the oil production in this country.
Houthis Yemeni rebels said that their fighters attacked their refineries with ten unmanned aerial vehicles.
