Gulf War Report: U.S., Saudi Sources Claim Attack On Saudi Oil Was Launched From Iran

On September 16, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) warned of more strikes on Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure. Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e advised foreigners to avoid the areas of Bqaiq and Khurais because they could be attacked again. He also said that Houthi forces will expand their operations against Saudi Arabia until the aggression against Yemen is stopped.

In own turn, Saudi Arabia claimed that Iranian weapons were used in aerial strikes over the weekend that interrupted much of the kingdom’s oil production, and that the attacks were not launched from Yemen. Saudi Arabia provided no evidence to confirm these claims. However, they clearly went in the framework of the US approach of directly blaming Iran.

Earlier, speculations appeared that the attacks on targets in eastern Saudi Arabia may have been launched not from Yemen. The first version of this speculations suggested that drones may have been launched by Iran-allied units of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units. Nonetheless, on September 16, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stressed that Iraq’s “territory was not used to carry out this attack”.

Mainstream media outlets, with help of various ‘anonymous sources’, are now pushing an idea that the strike was delivered by Iran. For instance, ABC News claimed citing “a senior Trump administration official” that “Iran launched nearly a dozen cruise missiles and over 20 drones from its territory”.

The level of tensions came to the level when US President Donald Trump said that the US is “locked and loaded” to respond with a force, waiting for verification of who was responsible and for word from Saudi Arabia on how to proceed.

The Trump administration has previously blamed Iran for the actions of the Houthis. However, so far, satellite images of the strike impact have been the only evidence that the US has released. This barely can serve as a confirmation of the Iranian involvement.

In this light, it would be interesting to look at this situation from another direction. Saudi Arabia currently has very complicated relations with the UAE and Qatar, located much closer to Buqayq and Khurais than Iran or any position of Iranian-backed forces. Furthermore, tensions between the UAE and Saudi Arabia grew to the level when UAE-backed and Saudi-backed forces openly clash in southern Yemen. The Qatari-Saudi relations have also been in a deep crisis since 2017. Therefore, these states have a direct interest in assisting to such a strike or, if we believe in the version that the Houthis were not involved, even delivering it by themselves.

    Thats BS. It was an Israeli False Flag Using one Steralth F35 covered by 2 drones and blamed on Iran so as to start a war to steal their oil.

      The aerial photos show that the round structures were hit from the West. Israel did it !

      The four identical, extremely accurate, impacts on the round structures in the photos look more like kinetic impacts rather than explosions. This looks like glide bombs with perhaps dummy warheads intentionally not detonated on impact, thus giving the impression that it was a small drone explosion that made these identical 6′ holes in the structures. Watch the video below.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j09uoOvi1tk

      Iran does not have this kind of accurate technology. Obviously , it was not Iran that did this. It was probably Israel. Israel recently launched small glide bombs against Iraqi Shia militias in Iraq. And, they did this either from US Coalition territory or from Azerbaijan. The bombs can glide 60 miles after being released at high altitude. Israel has a version of this glide bomb, but it has a video camera for final pinpoint accuracy. That is how they achieved the four identical hits in the photo.

      Kinetic bombs without explosives will generate incredible energy when they glide in to an impact. If they hit a pipe filled with oil or gas, that oil will be ignited.

      Israel probably just wanted to create small fires, and small holes, to make it look like small low tech unsophisticated drones at work. Something that Iran might be capable of. The fires may have gotten out of hand.
      Israel has stelth F-35’s that can carry 8 of the small GPS guided glide bombs described above.
      Thus two F-35’s could have carried out the attack. Only needing to approach within 60 miles of the target, from the West.

      I really wonder if it would – my leaders see sort of… dim. I did notice the US arranged a one-day Beirut port call on Sunday for the USS Ramage (Arleigh Burke class cruise missile-armed destroyer). The US ambassador to Lebanon held a reception on the ship for some Lebanese officials. I imagine it was supposed to be a reminder to Hezbollah that US cruise missiles will rain down on Lebanon if anybody picks on our best parasitic evil buddy in the entire universe: Israel. The port call and reception are entirely unrelated to the Houthi-Iranian-North Korean attack on Saudi oil facilities.

  • frankly

    Oh I get poor people can’t defend against their children being killed by the Saudis, but once again F.uk.us demands our sons rush in to prop up a government that can only be generously described as a lousy neighbor. Kinda reminds me of NY banks supporting the Nazi war efforts back in the day. No doubt they profited anyway.

  • frankly

    Too handy, destroy some obsolete equipment for the insurance money to upgrade and get the sympathy of the sheep to further WW III. Don’t cry over spilt oil.

  • frankly

    After all the people who have died and suffered in Yemen at the hands of the Saudis and their F.uk.us allies, this is all you got. You need to start WW III because the Federal Reserve has no other device to avoid really rich people taking a reduction in profit growth. You also need our sons to die to save your profits.

    I got a simple idea, if you want your oil refineries to be safe stop bombing the funerals, weddings, hospitals, and water treatment plants of the poorest people in the Middle East.

      Globalism as a Communistic construct is a major factor of jewish messianic “prophecies”. They won’t start WW3 if they can get rid of us instead through non-stop mass immigration from third world countries to first world countries, combined with widespread miscegenation while continuing to suppress our birth rates. This the ulterior motives behind multiculturalism, feminism, the LGBT, and modern Liberalism overall; though I prefer the term ‘Cultural Marxism’ to ‘Liberalism’, as I believe the latter to be a more accurate description of the ideology’s true nature.

      Their plan right is to throw the west (which they finished conquering in the first half of the 20th century) under the bus before they finish deracinating everyone else in order to eliminate all possible opposition to jewish messianic “prophecies”, which are essentially the ultimate manifestation of jewish religious “teachings” and the ultimate fulfillment of their master race ideology buried in their religious scriptures. During their “messianic age”, they intend for their “messiah” to rule the world under a one world government where all non-jews will be enslaved while exterminating anyone who gets in their way.

            The Talmudic [Mishneh] Torah says jews should kill Christians:

            bitchute[]com/video/FqIffn8iYnTC/

            Some of them apparently think the end is near, that the Moshiach (messiah) will arrive once the Third Temple is built. They now speak about this openly because they believe we, the non-jews, don’t stand a chance; for they firmly believe that we will inevitably be their slaves, while killing anyone who resists.

            From Israeli humanitarian David Sheen:

            – The rabbi seen in the picture of the video used to be the Chief Rabbi of the religious court in Israel, they have both religious and secular courts like Muslims do; their religious courts only operate as civil courts, never as criminal courts (unless it’s a Sharia court in an Islamic country that enforces Sharia Law).

      Very interesting to see there people out there like you.Who really cares for other human beings and have them on their heart. My fullest respect to you.

      • frankly

        It seems there are a few like that here. It is very hard to be in a culture with so many uncaring people including many of my close relations. But I feel like some feral dog who gets kicked when he tries to be part of something bigger than himself. In North America it’s all about personal gratification, screw everybody else. My biggest frustration is having a pretty solid grasp of why and what, but how to help in some small way to change the course of this machine that is hell bent to destroy us all.

            Thanks Xoli, I had an annual review with a supervisor once. He brought up an incident from 3 years previous, got called out by his super for it. But I confronted him alone after and said what is my problem? Why do you hate me so much? He got mad, I repeated myself, madder yet he said, “your problem is you care too much.”

    at at the heart of the matter is israel and israel and israel – sure as a klucking bell only one thing to do – remove israel from the equation/middle east to allow the region to prosper and allow its people a peaceful existence and as long as the thieving and murderous israelis are allowed to scheme and backstab with impunity, there will just be more unrest, more murders at the hands of the jews and more thievery of land and property belonging to one of the original middle east countries – destroy israel now. their eviction is long overdue.

    Ansar Allah conducted this attack with the aid of honourable people’s within Saudi Arabia.

    This is their version of the events and I do not see any reason not to trust them. Everything else is either lies or over-analysis.

    • d’Artagnan

      This attack was retaliation by Yemenis who have been bombed non-stop with Saudi flagged US planes, bombs and targeting information for over 4 years now. If it was Iran, then nothing would have been left of Saudi Arabia and UAE and hundreds of drones and cruise missiles would have been used.

    Who is both anti Iran and anti Mohammed Bin Salman?
    1) The Saudi princes and royalty whom MBS kidnapped and tortured and stole their money.
    2) Qatar whom MBS put an economic and travel siege for “regime” change.
    3) United Arab Emirates who are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen and fighting with Saudi backed forces in Aden.
    Saudi Arabia is the most hated regime in the Middle East.
    Saudi Arabia has only one main ally in the Middle East, Israel.

    • Pave Way IV

      Who is both anti Iran and anti Mohammed Bin Salman?

      1) The Saudi princes and royalty whom MBS kidnapped and tortured and stole their money.

      The entire al-Saud monarchy and inter-related parasitic royal court clans are against anyone that threatens their rule, privilege and/or wealth. Iran under the Shah and the al Sauds were best buddies for a decade before the Iranian Revolution. After that, Iran became an eternal threat to the al Sauds’ self-declared ‘ownership’ of Islam when Ayatollah Khomeini called them out on being degenerate hypocrites, infidels and unworthy of being protectors of the Holy Cities. As for MbS (personal opinion): anyone in the Saudi regime is only ‘for’ or ‘against’ MbS at any given time to the degree he supports their own – or perhaps their clan’s – self-interests. They have ALL been stealing the Saudi people’s (the ‘other’ 33 million non-al-Sauds) oil resources for decades. Head-thief-in-waiting MbS just needed to shake someone down to keep the Ponzi known as Saudi Arabia solvent. He picked on other wealthy al Sauds that he didn’t like anyway and were stealing too much. Internal al Saud mafia issue.

      2) Qatar whom MBS put an economic and travel siege for “regime” change.

      Qatar – another petty royal regime that acts in its own self-interests. When KSA and the UAE ganged up on Qatar (for regime change or whatever), Iran stepped in to help them. Qatar is no longer anti-Iranian today. Next week, who knows? Qatar has always been a thorn in the Saudi’s ass and never ‘liked’ them – they just tolerated each other better in the past.

      3) United Arab Emirates who are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen and fighting with Saudi backed forces in Aden.

      The UAE royalty, like the al Saudis, oppose the Muslim Brotherhood and want it eliminated because MB ideology is a political process and has little use for any privileged royalty or their rule. Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen takes the form of the al-Islah and nominally backs Hadi, but could jump ship to whomever seems to be winning. The UAE does not support MB in Yemen and, in fact, had covertly hired US mercs to assassinate al Islah leaders.The Saudis tolerated al Islah in Yemen because they supported Hadi. The UAE’s Yemeni proxies – the Southern Transitional Council – especially don’t like Muslim Brotherhood and resent Hadi’s association with them. The UAE withdrawal coincided with them arming the Southern Transitional Council to the teeth to ‘take care of’ Hadi and al Islah (MB) – without the UAE appearing directly involved. It kind of worked – STC was able to take over all of Aden. Hadi showed up with some troops to retake Aden, but were bombed by Emirati jets and left. So, sort of a stalemate now. Each thief has his own thoughts about what Yemeni spoils are theirs after they achieve victory. The Houthi, on the other hand, are becoming rather angry at both unwelcome ‘guests’.Not sure how the Houthi feel about al Islah.

    The truth is US and Saudi never ever able to trace the flight of those 10 drone. Their system also can not detect the drone. The PROOF are..both Saudi and US know about the attack after the fire and smoke begin to shake the earth.

    Only the SUPER idiots can claim that the drone origin from Iran.

    US and UK have been meddling in Iran since oil was discovered over a century ago. They are the real threat to Iran, but now it is strong enough to stand up to them and that irks them. Iran is now too powerful to intimidate and the Arab Sunni vassal states should understand that.
