“Such worthless accusations…. Are meaningless and incomprehensible, ”says Abbas Mousavi.

The statement comes after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Iran of the drone attacks in Saudi Arabia, something that the Huthi rebels in Yemen took responsibility for through their own television channel Al-Misirah.

One of the attacks occurred at an oil plant in Buqyaq, which is near the city of Dammam on the Persian Gulf. The other occurred on the Khurais oil field. Both oil plants are owned by Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil company and is directly crucial to Saudi Arabia's economy.
