Iran ‘staging ground’ for Saudi oil attack

US officials say intelligence data shows Iran is behind weekend attacks on key Saudi Arabian oil facilities, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday, Anadolu Agency  reported.Citing anonymous officials familiar with the matter, the Journal said the Islamic Republic was “the staging ground” for Saturday’s attacks and the US officials shared the information with their Saudi counterparts.Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the US was quick to deny that claim.On Twitter, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said “there is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen,” accusing Iran of launching “an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply.”Iran, however, has denied any role in the coordinated attacks.A senior official from the Trump administration told ABC News that Tehran launched a dozen cruise missiles and more than 20 drones from its territory.
