‘Entirely implausible’ to say Houthis behind Saudi oil attack: UK foreign minister
British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said it was implausible that attacks on Saudi oil facilities were conducted by Yemen’s Houthi militia, adding that Saudi Arabia had the right to defend itself against any further strikes.
“I find it, from the information I have seen, I find it entirely implausible and lacking in credibility to suggest that those attacks came from Houthi rebels,” Raab told the BBC, but he declined to say to whom Britain attributed the attacks.
“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.”
