SAUDI ARABIA SEES IRAN AS RESPONSIBLE FOR ARAMCO ATTACK




Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran have increased again after the recent attacks on two important refineries of Aramco, the national oil company of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia's Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki held a relevant press conference. Maliki said the attack was organized from the north and had no doubt that it was backed by Iran.

Iran's presidential adviser Hesameddin Ashena, who responded quickly to the statements made by Maliki at the press conference, shared his understanding that Saudi Arabia did not know anything in his statement from his social media account.

Turki al-Maliki said the attack on September 14 used 25 unmanned aerial vehicles and missiles. Maliki claimed that unmanned aerial vehicles belonged to Iran.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he wanted to increase the pressure on his country with alleged involvement in the attack targeting Aramco's two facilities.
