Saudi Crown Prince Blamed Iran For Attacks On Two Oil Tankers In The Gulf

Saudi Arabia‘s crown prince blamed Iran for attacks on two oil tankers off the region’s coast as he called for a ‘decisive stand’ to be made.

 

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said his kingdom does not want a war in the region but ‘will not hesitate to deal with threats to its people’, according to Saudi-owned Asharq al-Awsat newspaper.

The attacks, which saw two oil tankers targeted on Thursday, have raised fears of confrontation in Iran after the US also blamed the region.

The United States also claimed Iranians fired a missile at a US drone in the area hours before the attack but missed, an official told CNN.

The tankers were attacked in strikes south of the Strait of Hormuz, a vital shipping route and major transit route for oil.
