Saudi Arabia Accused Iran Of ‘Act Of War’, Iran Claimed Innocence

Unic Press UK: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has blamed the Islamic Republic of Iran for a failed missile attack on Riyadh’s international airport Saturday, accusing Iran of waging war against Saudi Arabia.

The accusation was direct, despite the fact that Yemen’s Houthi rebels had claimed responsibility.

During an interview Monday with the CNN, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir, said:

“With regards to the missile that landed that was Launched on Saudi territory, it was an Iranian missile launched by Hezbollah from territory occupied by the Houthis in Yemen… It was disassembled and smuggled into parts into Yemen. And it was assembled in Yemen by operatives from the Revolutionary Guards and  from Hezbollah. And then it was launched against Saudi Arabia. This is what happened. We see this as an act of war”

Ahmed al-Jubeir further said that Saudi Arabia reserves the right to defend/respond to threats in the “appropriate manner at the appropriate time.”
