Saudi Arabia says Iran involved in Aramco attack


Saudi Arabia said on Wednesday it has an evidence for Iran’s involvement in the recent drone attacks on its Aramco oil facilities.

“Iran-made Delta Wing drones participated in the attack on Aramco,” Col. Turki al-Maliki, spokesman for the Saudi Defense Ministry, said in a news conference aired by Saudi satellite TV channel Al-Arabiya.

Al-Maliki asserted that the attack “came from north to south and certainly was supported by Iran.”

According to the spokesman, the attack was carried out by 25 drones and a cruise missile.

On Saturday, armed drones struck two facilities of Saudi Arabia’s oil company Aramco.

Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks.
