Saudi Arabia says Iran behind Aramco attack

Amman, The Saudi Defense Ministry spokesman, Turki Malki, Wednesday blamed Iran for the attack on Saudi Aramco production facilities and said the missiles used in the attack were not fired from Yemen.

Maliki told journalists that the attack was carried out by 25 cruise missiles and drones coming from the north, and that all the weapons used in the attack were Iranian-made.

Iran was using “proxies” to target Saudi Arabia, Maliki added, urging the international community to call Iran out on its practices and for its responsibility for the Aramco attacks.

“We stress the subversive role of Iran and its arms in the region and the world,” he said.

Maliki stressed that Saudi Arabia will continue its investigation to determine the source of the missiles and drones, and that “Iran is trying to fabricate the facts.”

The Saudi defense ministry put on display debris of the drones and missiles employed in the attack against Aramco.
