UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Saudi Arabia on Wednesday handed over a letter to the UN Security Council in which it blames Iran and the Ansarullah group for the attacks on its oil facilities.

According to the Saudi Arabian television channel Al-Arabiya, the letter was handed over by Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative to the UN, Abdallah Al-Mouallimi.

“Tuesday’s attack on oil installations in Saudi Arabia is due to Iran and Iranian-backed Houthi militias,” it said in the letter.

According to the same source, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates sent a joint message to the UN Security Council and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres about the latest attacks and the so-called sabotage that targeted last Sunday four ships off the United Arab Emirates.

In response to Saudi Arabia’s near-daily attacks on Tuesday morning, Yemeni forces targeted with drones two pumping stations of the Saudi oil company Aramco in the governorates of al-Dawadmi and Afif in Riyadh province.
