Iraq has denied media reports claiming that its territory was used to launch the drones that attacked Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities on Saturday night, a statement from the Iraqi Prime Minister’s press-service released on Twitter says.

“​Iraq denies reports in the press and on social media that its territory was used to attack oil facilities in Saudi Arabia with drones”, the statement reads.

It also says that the constitution of Iraq does not allow the use of its territory for aggressive actions towards its neighbours. The Iraqi authorities have set up a committee to monitor reports and the latest events relating to the drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities.

Iraq also urges the warring sides in Yemen to find a peaceful solution to the conflict and refrain from “mutual attacks that cause a huge damage to facilities and claim people’s lives,” according to the statement.

Two drones attacked Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities on Saturday night, causing major fires and disrupting oil production. Yemen’s Houthis claimed responsibility for the attacks but the US has blamed Iran for the incident. Tehran has rejected the allegations.

Los medios de comunicación occidentales siempre victimizando a la Monarquía patrocinador del terrorismo en la región, sin embargo casi nunca condenan los asesinatos de civiles en Yemen, no les importa la vida pero si una refinería. Verguenza ajena y doble rasero de estos medios al servicio del imperio.

Maybe it was PMU that did it.

Changes nothing : using proxies and attacking directly is the same thing under intl. law. Most of the time, proxy attacks are just seen as not enough to launch an all out war. Start to attack strategic targets like the biggest refinery on Earth or do massive destructions with thousands of death in a city, you’ve gone too far…
BTW, justice ended gathering proofs that Iran participated 9-11…
