Unconfirmed
#Houthis apparently also used their Quds-1 Cruise missile on the attack on #Aramco oil facilities at #Abqaiq KSA, replica of the #Iranian "Sumar". The tail part can be seen without the booster which was jettisoned after launch. https://t.co/U1XP0bk4sP

Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while Rouhani and Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy. Amid all the calls for de-escalation, Iran has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply. There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen.

We call on all nations to publicly and unequivocally condemn Iran’s attacks. The United States will work with our partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain well supplied and Iran is held accountable for its aggression

Iranian supported Houthi rebels who attacked Saudi oil refineries is yet another example of how Iran is wreaking havoc in the Middle East. The Iranian regime is not interested in peace - they’re pursuing nuclear weapons and regional dominance.

It is now time for the U.S. to put on the table an attack on Iranian oil refineries if they continue their provocations or increase nuclear enrichment.

Iran will not stop their misbehavior until the consequences become more real, like attacking their refineries, which will break the regime’s back.

We're going to be watching this, especially if Saudi Arabia actually has the gumption to attack Iran directly.

If SA attacks Iran? Good question. When Iran and Iraq were fighting, DEFCON stayed at 5. The US and Russia weren't really involved. It all depends on who decides to put their noses into it.
