President Trump has not blamed Iran directly for the attacks, however, pending an investigation of the incident and has said he would “like to avoid” a war.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., told reporters in London that Iran or its allies were likely involved. He said U.S. military officials are reviewing how they could “help the Saudis defend themselves.”

Investigators from the United States as well as France have been dispatched to oil processing facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais to determine the origins of the projectiles that slammed into them.

The attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure were the most serious in decades and far outstripped any past attacks by the Houthis on Saudi Arabia.

The rebels have been battling a Saudi-led coalition backing the internationally recognized government in Yemen since 2015. The conflict has caused the world’s most severe humanitarian crisis.

In remarks to his cabinet, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the Houthi rebels were only responding to years of attacks and airstrikes.

“The Yemeni nation was not the source of the conflict, but it was Saudi Arabia, the UAE, the Americans,” he said, according to Iranian media.

At the same cabinet meeting, Iran’s defense minister, Brig. Gen. Amir Hatami, denied that Tehran had any role in the attack. He noted that “the Yemenis carried out a similar operation around two years ago.”

The tensions in the region center on a rivalry between Saudi Arabia and regional heavyweight Iran, especially in the Persian Gulf, a key international waterway for oil shipments. The United Arab Emirates is allied with the Saudis in that confrontation.

The United States has said Iran is behind a strong of attacks on ships moving through those water over the summer — a charge Iran denies.
