Saudi oil attacks an 'act of war' by Iran, not Yemen rebels, Pompeo claims

Saudi oil attacks an 'act of war' by Iran, not Yemen rebels, Pompeo claims | 18 Sept 2019 | U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday doubled down on accusations Iran is responsible for the weekend bombing on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities, telling reporters that the strike was "an act of war." Pompeo, speaking from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, added that even if the "fraudulent claims" of responsibility by the Yemen Houthi rebels were true, "it doesn't change the fingerprints of the Ayatollah as having put at risk the global energy supply." His comments come hours after President Trump tweeted that he had ordered Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to "substantially increase sanctions" on Iran, amid escalating tensions between the two countries.
