Yemen’s Houthis Dismiss Iran’s Involvement In Aramco Attack

SANAA, Sept 19 (NNN-SABA) – Yemen’s Houthi rebels denied any involvement by Iran, in their attacks that targeted two Aramco oil plants in Saudi Arabia this week.

The group’s spokesman, Yahya Saree, made the remarks, in a televised press conference from Sanaa, minutes after Saudi Arabia displays fragments of the attack sites, which are said to be the evident of Iranian involvement.

“New Yemen (Houthi leadership) is capable to respond and hit deep into enemy territory … More Saudi vital facilities will be burned, if their aggression war and economic blockade continue,” the spokesman said.

Saree said that the drones used in the attack were locally made and can reach a range of up to 1,700 km, but he provided no evidence to support his group’s claim.

The Houthi spokesman also vowed to target dozens of vital targets in Dubai and Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), “if the Saudi-led coalition war against Yemen continues.”

“We will not stand idle, while our people are starving to death,” Saree said, pointing to Saudi Arabia and the UAE to take the threat seriously.

In Riyadh, spokesperson of the Saudi-led coalition, Turki al-Maliki, displayed fragments of “25 drones and cruise missiles” he said, used in the attack on Aramco.– NNN-SABA
