Iran: Saudia must consider oil attacks as warning to end Yemen war

TEHRAN: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday called on Saudi Arabia to consider the oil attacks as a warning to end the war in Yemen.

Rouhani’s remarks came during a Cabinet meeting in the capital Tehran.

He didn’t comment on the U.S. allegations that Iran is behind the attacks on key Saudi facilities. However, Tehran denied the allegations.

Early Sunday, Saudi Arabia announced halting oil production temporarily from these oil facilities, following drone attacks.

Since 2015, the Saudi-led coalition has been fighting the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. Thousands of Yemenis were killed and the country was pushed to the brink of famine.

In recent months, Houthis, whose mid- and long-range ballistic missiles are usually intercepted by Saudi air defense systems, have targeted certain strategic parts of Saudi Arabia with armed drones.
