Saudi publicly blames Iran
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has accused Iran of being behind to the attacks which lead to an oil price rise of 4%. He stated the Kingdom does not seek war however it will ‘take a decisive stance’ towards any threat to its community.
The Trump administration, currently in a trade battle with Ira,n has made the same accusation. US President Donald Trump, who labelled the attacks as ‘minor’, is also making headlines for deploying 1,000 extra troops to the Middle East for’ additional intelligence’ in the region.
