UK's Raab doubts Houthis are behind attack on Saudi

Boris Johnson's top diplomat Dominic Raab wouldn't accuse any side in particular on Sunday of conducting last week's attack on Aramco's oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, but he said the claim by the rebels in Yemen that they are behind it is "entirely implausible and lacking in credibility." The United Kingdom's first secretary of state and secretary of state for foreign and Commonwealth affairs told the BBC cited information that he has "seen."

"Before we attribute responsibility, I want to be absolutely crystal clear. Because that will mean the action that we take can be as robust and as widely supported as possible," the minister added. The United States claimed Iran was to blame for the strike with drones and missiles. The Islamic Republic denied any connection with the attack and threatened to retaliate strongly to any act of aggression.
