Saudis reveal ‘evidence’ Iran behind oil attacks

Correspondent

It was the show and tell that could be the precursor for a Middle East war.

Saudi officials today displayed drone and cruise missile parts which they claim prove Iran’s involvement in the attack on the heart of the Saudi Arabian oil industry.

Riyadh said the direction of flight means that there is no way that the attacks were launched from Yemen to the south, where Houthi rebels first claimed responsibility.

Iran has denied it was responsible and said it would retaliate immediately if it is targeted.
