Mysterious drones or Who blew up the Saudi oil pipelines?


Two oil pumping stations in the neighborhood of Riyadh underwent explosions from air. Installations of the Aramco company attacked Photo UAVs: Ali Haider/EPA/TASS On Sunday, May 12, the Lebanese TV channel AlMayadeen reported that in the port of Fudzheyry was blown up "from seven to ten" oil tankers, including Saudi. This information was picked up right there by world media, but it was very quickly disproved by the authorities of the UAE. Even earlier the USA began to increase Navy group near the Persian Gulf, and the adviser to the president for national security issues John Bolton said that this step — a signal to Iran, and any attack on the interests of the USA and their allies will receive power repulse. Speaking about the fire on oil installations of the Aramco company, the Saudi minister of oil and mineral resources Khalid al-Falikh it is transparent hinted that "terrorist attack" could be organized by the Yemen Houthis supported by Iran from the movement "Ansar Allah". However in a similar statement the obvious discrepancy is visible. The matter is that in a case with bombing of the Saudi oil installations this is not about the drones assembled "on a knee" from details which ordered on Alibaba as it was in Syria when UAVs attacked the Russian air base Hmeymim. Here the high-precision and difficult military equipment demanding serious preparation is available.

It should be noted that the first messages about attacks and the fires on the Saudi oil installations were published in the pro-Iranian editions of other countries. To think that Iran is involved in the attacks, there is no wish, but also very much it would not be desirable to present that insurgents Houthis used so hi-tech military equipment. It from the category of a fantasy, the head of scientific research of Dialogue of Civilizations institute Alexey Malashenko considers. Alexey Malashenko the head of researches at Institute of dialogue of civilizations "If we look at the average Houthi, he is not able to do anything. It occurred in that situation when tension with Iran was fueled. Today it turns out that it is most of all necessary for Iran, and all the rest while there is no information, is inventions. So far nobody undertook responsibility for it, and I think, as will not take, we can comment only on conjectures. This certain prevention, caution: "We can and so!" To imagine the serious conflict in this region at me there is simply not enough impudence because it п
