US blames Iran for Saudi oil attack despite Iranian denials

After two drone attacks hit the Abqaiq Oil facility, the largest of its kind, and the Khurais oil field, Yemeniti Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attacks. Nervertheless the US Administration blames Iran to be behind the Saudi oil attacks, saying satellite images show they were not carried out from Yemen as Houthi rebels claimed. President Donald Trump says the US could respond militarily to attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities. Trump tweeted "There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, (we) are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the (Saudi-Arabian) Kingdom".
