Saudi Arabia: Attack on Aramco was by 7 Cruise missiles,18 Iranian drones

Missiles and drones hit Aramco facilities are Iranian-made weapons, the Saudi defense ministry said on Wednesday.

According to agencies, Saudi Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki presented Wednesday evening remnants and pieces of missiles and weapons that targeted Aramco factories in eastern Saudi Arabia.

At a news conference in Riyadh, al-Maliki said the attack on Aramco facilities did not start from Yemen, despite the impression that Iran had spread.

He added that the attack was carried out by seven Cruise missiles and 18 drones, which came from the north and not from the south.

He said, "We are continuing our investigation to determine the exact location from which the missiles and drones were launched."

An attack was launched on September 14 targeting Saudi Aramco facilities and factories in Khurais and Abqaiq in the east of the kingdom, resulting in fires.

Al-Maliki said the damage to the facility, along with evidence collected from the attack site, indicates the specific capabilities and accuracy of these weapons.
