Saudis Claim Iran Ordered Aramco Pipeline Drone Attack

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Saudi Arabia on Thursday blamed Iran for ordering an attack early this week on two Aramco pipeline booster stations, a strike that was intended as part of a broader sabotage campaign to disrupt world oil supplies, according to Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih.

The drone attacks came one day after a string of attacks on two Saudi oil tankers and two other vessels in the Strait of Hormuz, and caused the temporary closure of a vital east-west pipeline traversing the kingdom, since reopened.

Prince Khalid Bin Salman, the vice minister for defense and brother of the crown prince MbS, described Yemen’s Houthis – which were believed to have launched the drone attack – of being used as an “Iranian” tool advancing Tehran’s aggression and hegemony in the region.

In a tweet, he said the Houthi militias “are merely a tool that Iran’s regime uses to implement its expansionist agenda in the region, and not to protect the people of Yemen as the Houthis falsely claim”.

Since 2015 Saudi coalition jets have been waging a brutal bombing campaign over Yemen to roll back the country’s Shia Houthi rebels, the latter which have occasionally launched missile and drone attacks against sensitive sites in the kingdom, at times even reaching Riyadh’s international airport with ballistic missiles.

Soon after Monday’s drone attack on the Aramco facilities, dramatic video was released online showing extensive destruction of the pumping stations, which had been on fire for hours following the attack.

US and Saudi investigators further blamed Iran for a “sabotage attack” on several Saudi and international tankers off a UAE port near the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday.

The despicable House of Saud, waging an illegal war against one of the poorest countries on the planet, the mother of terrorism, has zero credibility. The US and EU are supporting this bloody mess that starves innocent civilians and the cholera that kills them. Shame doesn’t quite cover it.


Saudis ass-es too much itch these days.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

yea well maybe if you werent killing innocent people and bombing yemen, this wouldn’t have happened. dont dish it out if you cant take it, saudi scumshits!!! lmao


Yes, the message is there, if they didn’t know it already, now they know it – Saudi oil facilities are vulnerable. Are you feeling a little insecure now Saudis?


and all the while israeli advisers are helping the saudi war efforts, with strategies, targets and weapons, and at the same time gaining experience in the field of war – get them and hang them high! all of them!

here is some fresh News of my dear satanic Evil jew motherfuckers

Amnesty International says the Israeli firm behind a recent security breach that targeted human rights activists using the WhatsApp messenger app must be held into account for its close ties with repressive regimes. In a statement on Thursday, Amnesty urged the Israeli regime to revoke export licenses of the notorious Israeli IT firm NSO, which designed the spyware linked to the WhatsApp breach. The London-based rights group told Reuters that the company’s deeds “resulted in human rights abuses.” WhatsApp, a unit of Facebook, admitted Tuesday that hackers had managed to use the security breach on its messaging app to target human rights activists. Eva Galperin, director of cybersecurity at San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation, said WhatsApp had informed human rights groups that the spyware was likely developed by Israel’s NSO. This was also confirmed by another person familiar with the matter. In an emailed statement to Reuters, Amnesty asserted that NSO has “again and again demonstrated their intent to avoid responsibility for the way their software is used.” It said only the Israeli regime at its highest ranks could intervene and stop the company. NSO said after the WhatsApp breach that it would investigate any “credible allegations of misuse” of its technology which “is solely operated by intelligence and law enforcement agencies.” WhatsApp, one of the world’s most popular messaging tools which is used by 1.5 billion people monthly, said it had fixed the exploit in its latest update and asked the US Department of Justice to help with an investigation into the breach.

They charge that NSO has sold Saudi and Mexican governments hacking tools to hack into their phones, the lawyer said, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity. Novalpina, NSO’s biggest shareholder, told Amnesty in a May 15 letter signed by founding partner Stephen Peel that it was “determined to do whatever is necessary to ensure that NSO technology is used for the purpose for which it is intended – the prevention of harm to fundamental human rights arising from terrorism and serious crime – and not abused in a manner that undermines other equally fundamental human rights.” An unnamed WhatsApp spokesman told France 24 that all the malware needed to infiltrate the target smart phones were missed calls through the app’s voice calling function.

PressTV-Experts who linked Israel firm to Khashoggi killing targeted Undercover agents have targeted the researchers who found that an Israeli spyware firm helped Saudi Arabia spy on Jamal Khashoggi before his murder last year. According to the source, an unknown number of users were infected with the malware. The WhatsApp spokesman said the attack had “all the hallmarks of a private company that has been known to work with governments to deliver spyware that has the ability to take over mobile phone operating systems”. NSO’s spyware has repeatedly been used in hacking attacks against journalists, lawyers, human rights advocates and dissidents. The spyware first made the headlines when it was implicated in the Riyadh regime’s gruesome murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed and dismembered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last October. His body has yet to be found.
