Saudi says Iranian sponsorship of attack undeniable, displays arms

Saudi Arabia displayed remnants of what it described as Iranian drones and cruise missiles used in an attack on Saudi oil facilities as “undeniable” evidence of Iranian aggression.Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said a total of 25 drones and missiles were launched at two oil plants in last weekend’s strikes, including what he identified as Iranian Delta Wing unmanned aerial vehicles and “Ya Ali” cruise missiles. He said the missiles have been used by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.Iran has denied any involvement in the assault that initially halved Saudi Arabia’s oil production.Malki said both drones and missiles were launched at Abqaiq, home to the world’s largest oil processing facility, and that cruise missiles had targeted Khurais.Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement, which has been battling a Saudi-led military coalition, had claimed responsibility for the strikes.
