Saudi Arabia: Aramco attack was not operated from Yemen

September 19, 2019

Saudi Arabia accused Iran on Wednesday of being behind the attacks on Aramco oil facilities last Saturday, declaring that the attacks were not launched from Yemen, as announced earlier the Houthi group

“Iran has tried to falsify the facts, the attack on Aramco came from the north and with Iranian support,” ministry spokesman Turki al-Maliki told a news conference in Riyadh. “Our evidence confirms that Aramco’s attack did not originate from Yemen.”

Maliki called on the international community to “recognize the malicious Iranian attacks,” noting that the attack on Aramco “is not only aimed at Saudi Arabia, but at the whole world, and the attack is aimed at affecting the global economy.”

Maliki did military check of the remnants of the planes and missiles targeted in the attack, saying some of them were cruise missiles.
