Iraq says it has nothing to do with the drone attack on Saudi oil facilities



IRAQ today denied allegations that its territory was used to launch drone attacks on Saudi oil facilities.

Iran-backed Yemen rebels Huti have announced that they have attacked Saudi Arabia's largest oil plant in Abkaik with ten drones and promised the Saudi regime more painful operations if it does not end its aggression against Yemen.



“The constitution obliges Iraq not to allow the use of its territory to invade neighboring countries,” Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdel-Mahdi's office said on Twitter on Sunday.

In a statement, Prime Minister Mahdi added that his government would “firmly” oppose any attempt to violate the Iraqi constitution in this regard.

Mahdi calls on all parties in Yemen to end the conflict.

Pompeo blames Iran

Earlier on Sunday, a neighboring state of Iran rejected US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's claim that it was responsible for the drone attack on Saudi Arabia's largest oil plant.

According to Saudi television, the attack did not disrupt oil exports. However, The Wall Street Journal and US network CNN reported on Saturday, citing unnamed sources, that Saudi Arabia had cut production by 5.7 million barrels a day, nearly half of its total production, or 5 percent of total world production .

Saudi Arabia exports over 7 million barrels of oil every day.

Saudi Arabia produces about 10 million barrels of oil a day, and produced an average of 9, 85 million barrels in August, according to the U.S. Energy Information Agency.

“Unprecedented Attack”

Pompeo called the action “an unprecedented attack on the world's oil supply.”

Iran on Sunday said the attack on oil facilities was a response from Yemeni rebels to the war crimes of the Saudi coalition in Yemen.

Some political analysts have estimated that the onslaught of oil plants in the focus will put a war on Yemen, the poorest country in the Arabian Peninsula, which has killed at least 10,000 lives since 2015 and triggered the worst humanitarian crisis in a world where famine threatens 20 million people, according to estimates Of the UN.

The Saudi-led Arab coalition, aided by weapons and intelligence backed by the West, has become embroiled in a 2015 war in Yemen against rebel Houthis who have the support of Shiite Iran.

The war in Yemen is considered a “mediator” war in which Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shi'ite Iran clash for dominance in the region.
