Saudi Arabia Confirms New ‘Iran-Backed’ Drone Attack On Aramco Facility

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Saudi Arabia has confirmed a fresh Houthi attack on Saudi Aramco facilities on Friday, for which Riyadh is further pointing the finger at Iran. The kingdom said the continued attacks threaten “the security and stability of the world’s energy supplies”.

The Yemeni Shia group which the US-Saudi coalition has been at war with since 2015 initially claimed responsibility for the Friday attack on the Saudi capital. An Aramco refinery had been hit by what was reported as six-bomb laden drones, resulting in a fire which later came under control without impacting oil supplies at the plant.

Later Saudi officials said the projectiles released by the drones were made in Iran. “Missiles used in the attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities, for which Yemen’s Tehran-backed Houthi group has claimed responsibility, were made in Iran, a Saudi minister said,” as cited in Bloomberg.

Minister of state for foreign affairs Adel Al-Jubeir issued a statement saying “All of the missiles and drones that came into Saudi are Iranian-manufactured or Iranian-supplied.”

Suggesting further the attack may have also ‘directly’ involved Iranian operatives such as the IRGC (and not just the Houthis as proxies), he added: “Several of them, as we’ve said, came from the north; several came from the sea.”

Russia alongside others condemned the attack on the oil facilities and urged a halt in violence. It comes after prior such Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia this month, which saw oil prices rise above $70 a barrel in a first since January 2020.

However, as of Saturday more inbound drones were reported, according to Arab News:

The Arab Coalition said Saturday that it it has intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by the Houthi militia towards the city of Khamis Mushait in Saudi Arabia, according to Al Arabiya TV.

The coalition said it was taking “all necessary operational measures to protect civilians against terrorist assaults.”

Yemen’s Houthis have long maintained they are responding to the Saudi coalition’s unrelenting aerial bombing of Yemen, which has unleashed what the UN has dubbed the world’s ‘worst humanitarian disaster’ – also as the country is plunged into famine amid a coalition-imposed blockade.

What’s Yemen to do when the Ziocorporate terrorist world order designers unleash ISIS/al-Qaeda on your country with Saudi airforce and US/ISraeli drone/satellite targeting and intel support and even Colombian/Mexican terrorist druglord mercs serving the DEA/CIA and Turk-trained terrorists more recently.

A successful bombing of all Saudi royal residences and the complete destruction of Aramco would be more fitting for what’s been done to Yemen, the royal Ziowahhabi cuntdom shouldn’t complain so much.

and the clown prince together with netanyahu swinging from the rafters at the end of a rope. what could be better to see, well maybe all jews on the run from the illegally occupied palestine.

tzatz

Wow … ‘getting high all the time hope y’all are too’ … eh?

Sheesh …

Selbstdenker

well, the bombs used by Saudi to bomb Yemen are from U.S. what is the conclusion about the origion of the weapons used?

Hadi Heidary

Saudi have been massacring yemenis for 6 years using weaponry provided by US,European countries and others in the mix , now that they aquired the mean to retaliate,Saudi keep using international community to put pressure on them. i guess the fact that strong always prey on the weak never changes.

Just Me

In reality even the pilots are now US, UK and French mercenaries who are bombing schools and wedding parties in Yemen. However, the Saudi cowards are in real trouble as the brazen Ansarallah attacks are taking their toll on the exposed oil infrastructure. The much heralded Aramco IPO failed as Jew investors get nervous when drones fly in at will and Saudi Bedouins can’t even protect their capital.

Saudi oil giant Aramco to scale back spending after 2020 profit slump and regular Houthi drone attacks.

So what if they are Iranian made and supplied. Saudi missiles on Yemen are US or UK supplied

Arch Bungle

“Iranian Backed” = The Yemeni drone pilots were reclining on Persian carpets at the time of the bombing.
