US to present evidence of Iran's guilt in attack on Saudi Arabia to UN

Earlier, on September 17, US Vice President Mike Pence said that the US troops were put on alert due to the incident.

The United States is set to present evidence of Iran’s guilt in attacking Saudi oil facilities at the UN General Assembly next week, France 24 reported, referring to an unnamed US official.

Washington believes that not only unmanned aerial vehicles were used for the attack, but also cruise missiles and that the attack itself came from the territory of Iran, and not from Yemen. BBC News reported that rockets were fired from territories in southern Iran.

Earlier, on September 17, US Vice President Mike Pence said that the US troops were put on alert due to the incident. Prior to this, US President Donald Trump agreed with the opinion of the country's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Iran is behind these attacks. 

On the morning of September 14, a fire broke out on the facilities of the plant of Saudi Arabia’s national oil company Saudi Aramco. According to official information, the fire began as a result of an attack by unmanned aerial vehicles. Hussite Yemeni rebels claimed responsibility for the attack. On September 16, US Senator Lindsay Graham proposed attacking Iran’s oil refineries.
