Arab Coalition Spokesperson said on Wednesday that Saturday’s attack on two of Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities were “unquestionably sponsored by Iran” and “did not originate from Yemen despite Iran’s best efforts to make it appear so.”

Colonel Turki al-Maliki added that the drones used in the attack were outside the range of the drones used by the Houthi militia.

“The attack was launched from the north and unquestionably sponsored by Iran. We are working to know the exact launch point,” al-Maliki said in a press conference.

He called the attack on Abqaiq “an attack on the global economy” and said that 18 drones and 7 cruise missiles struck the Aramco oil facilities and were flying from north to south.

He said the attacks in Abqaiq and Hijrat Khurais oilfield are an extension of attacks on Afif and Dawadmi which occured on May 14.

Al-Maliki showed journalists the remains of the weapons while stopping short of directly accusing Iran of launching the assault
