French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Laudrian questioned the Houthis’ claim for the Saudi oil facilities, known as “Aramco attacks,” saying it isnot possible”.”It is not true that the Houthis in Yemen attacked Aramco facilities in Saudi Arabia. Their claim of the attack cannot be taken into account,” he said.
The group “Ansar Allah” last Saturday, claimed that they did a drone attack on two oil facilities belonging to the Saudi oil giant “Aramco” in “Abqaiq” and “HijratKhurais” in the eastern region of Saudi Arabia.
However, a spokesman for the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen, Turki al-Maliki, said initial investigations into the attack on oil facilities in the kingdom indicated that the weapons used were Iranian.
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday showed remnants of the Iranian drones and cruise missiles used to attack Saudi oil facilities, saying they were “undeniable” evidence of Iranian aggression.
For his part, the Iranian Defense Minister Amir Khatami, said that the group “Ansar Allah” carried out the attack on oil facilities “by their own means.”.
