Saudis accuse Iran of ordering Yemen rebel oil attack

Tuesday's "attack by the Iranian-backed Huthi militias against the two Aramco pumping stations proves that these militias are merely a tool that Iran's regime uses to implement its expansionist agenda in the region," the prince said on Twitter.

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia's deputy defence minister, Khalid bin Salman, accused Iran on Thursday of ordering drone attacks on two of its oil pumping stations that were claimed by Yemen's Huthi rebels.

Tuesday's "attack by the Iranian-backed Huthi militias against the two Aramco pumping stations proves that these militias are merely a tool that Iran's regime uses to implement its expansionist agenda in the region," the prince said on Twitter.

"The terrorist acts, ordered by the regime in Tehran, and carried out by the Huthis, are tightening the noose around the ongoing political efforts."
