Tehran responds to Riyadh accusations of attacking oil facilities

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) –Iranian Presidential Advisor Hesamodin Ashna called the accusations by Saudi Arabia of Tehran’s involvement in attacks on oil facilities Saudi Aramco a disaster for the kingdom.

Earlier, a representative of the Saudi Ministry of Defense of Turki al-Maliki demonstrated the wreckage of missiles that the Iranian military allegedly used to attack the fields. In turn, the Hussites again took responsibility for the attack and said that they carried out the attack with the help of a new type of drones. According to a representative of the rebel armed forces, drones carrying four warheads were launched from three different positions.

“The press conference proved that Saudi Arabia knows nothing about where the missiles and drones were launched or where they were launched from, and could not explain why the country’s air defense system could not intercept them,” Ashna wrote on Twitter.

Assault on objects

On Saturday, several plants of the Saudi Aramco oil and gas company were attacked by drones and rocket fire. The responsibility for what happened was claimed by the Hussite Yemeni rebels, against whom Saudi Arabia is fighting in the coalition of Arab states. Despite this, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the attack.

In Tehran, these accusations were called false. An official representative of the Government of the Islamic Republic emphasized that the incident was harmful to the entire region and was not in Iran’s interests. In addition, Tehran noted that Washington’s accusations have already become a tradition and are not surprising.
