  • Iran warns Western nations to 'stay away' from the Persian Gulf

Although the Iran-backed Houthi rebel group in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attacks, US officials were quick to place blame on Tehran, saying the operation was too sophisticated to have been carried out by the rebels.

The British foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, on Sunday described it as "implausible" that the Saudi oilfield attacks were perpetrated by the Houthi movement.

President Donald Trump said he had "no intention" of meeting with Iran at the upcoming U.N. meetings, as the United States is set to deploy additional troops and missile defense equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, according to the Pentagon.

Saudi Minister for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said yesterday that his country wants "good relations" with Iran, but Tehran meets this with "death and destruction", the Anadolu Agency reported.

The Prime Minister said on Sunday that the United Kingdom could attribute blame with a "very high degree of probability" to the Islamic republic as he declined to rule out military intervention. His comments appeared to channel those of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif who wrote on September 18 that the U.S. was escalating "economic war on Iranians".

French officials, who were sent investigators to Saudi to help uncover the source of the attack, have said claims the Houthis were responsible "lack credibility". "The scale, sophistication and range of the attack is inconsistent with the Houthi's capability".

In June, Trump had also called off a missile strike after Iran shot down a USA surveillance drone.

The Houthis have launched numerous drone, missile and rocket attacks on the Gulf kingdom.

Iran warns Western nations to 'stay away' from the Persian Gulf

Washington last week imposed a fresh round of sanctions on Iran, including on its central bank and its sovereign-wealth fund.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani yesterday denounced the presence of foreign forces in the Persian Gulf and said Iran would put forward a peace plan, after the United States ordered reinforcements to the tinderbox region.

The fallout from an attack last week on Saudi oil fields has involved an exchange of semi-veiled threats between the country and Iran, which Saudi Arabia blames for the attacks.

Gen. Hossein Salami, at a ceremony displaying pieces of the American drone Iran shot down in June, said that his forces have carried out "war exercises and are ready for any scenario".

"This year at the United Nations, we will present to the world the Hormuz peace initiative - the gist of which is love and hope - with the slogan 'The coalition of hope, '" Rouhani stated.

Washington has blamed Iran, which has denied any involvement, while Riyadh rejected claims that the attack was perpetrated by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The U.S. and Europe have diverged sharply on how to deal with Iran.
