Iran
has dismissed US accusations it was behind drone attacks on Saudi
Arabia’s oil plants, and warned it is ready for a “full-fledged”
war. Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Washington
had adopted a “maximum pressure” strategy against Iran, but
because of “its failure [the US] is leaning toward maximum
lies”. His remarks came as a senior commander in Iran’s
Revolutionary Guards said America’s military bases and aircraft
carriers, which are stationed up to 1,243 miles around Iran, were
within range of Iranian missiles. Amirali Hajizadeh was also quoted
by the Tasnim news agency as saying that Iran has always been ready
for a “full-fledged” war, without mentioning Saturday’s
explosions in Saudi Arabia. Saturday’s drone attacks – which Yemen’s
Iranian-backed Houthi rebels claim they carried out – have halted
around half of Saudi oil supplies after hitting the kingdom’s biggest
processing facility and a major oil field. They set off huge fires,
leading to a suspension of production operations at the Abqaiq
facility and the Khurais field, about 200 miles northeast of the
Saudi capital Riyadh.
