Foreign Ministry of Saudi Arabia made an announcement on Sunday amid recent tensions with Iran that they do not want war in the region, but stand ready to respond with “full force and determination”.

“Saudi Arabia does not want a war in the region, does not seek it and will do everything in its power to prevent this war. At the same time, it confirms that if the other side chooses war, the kingdom will respond with full force and determination and will defend itself and its interests,” Al Jubeir wrote on Twitter.

The news comes as tensions in the region flared up over the week. On May 12, two oil tankers from Saudi Arabia and two other vessels were targeted by a mysterious attack in the United Arab Emirates’ exclusive economic zone.

Even though no one has claimed responsibility for the sabotage, the United States has reportedly suggested that sanctions-battered Iran, which has now entered a new phase of tensions with Washington, might have been behind the attack.

On Tuesday, Yemeni Houthi rebels carried out drone attacks on Saudi oil facilities, causing fire and minor damage.

The Houthis have called it the largest military operation conducted by the rebels against Saudi Arabia since the start of their armed conflict with the Riyadh-backed Yemeni government.

The kingdom has vowed to retaliate against the attacks of the Houthis, who, it believes, are backed by Iran. Tehran, however, has repeatedly denied having any role in the Yemen conflict.

Because you think they will send boots? It’s no more trendy, dude! They’ll just do like in Yemen : send Iran from the medieval era they share with you, straight back to the stone age. If they do dam busting like in Yemen, it’s Iraq that will be happy : all the water the ayatoilets block from them as they need gigantic quantities of water to flush the 50 tons of pöö that comes out every time they open their mouths… With one third of GDP having plummeted within a year, a flick of the finger will be enough to… Read more »

As even their US masters put it, the Saudi corrupt and inept military, “could not fight its way out of a paper bag”, let alone take on Iran. The Ansarallah in Yemen have shown the Saudi cowardly child killers and their paid mercenaries a thing or two about bravery and how to fight like men!

Well, when speaking about corruption, your Khamenei embezzlement is estimated to $95 billions, he’s richer than king Salman, thanks to what he stole from the Iranian people… “The Ansarallah in Yemen have shown the Saudi cowardly child killers and their paid mercenaries a thing or two about bravery and how to fight like men!” => How amusing, knowing that there are several hundreds teenagers in Iranian death-row… The Bani-Saud are serious a$$holes, but you’re the pot that is calling the kettle black… And you’re funny : if kids are killed, they are martyrs and go to your allah’s paradise.

Khamenei loves Daesh! These cockroaches were his tool to mass murder Iraqi and Syrian Sunnis+Yezidis+Kurds then have the Yankees and the Russians exterminate Daesh so he can fill the vacuum with IRGC… Except that… The plot to exterminate the Kurds has failed, thanks to our support and fast delivery of Milan ATGMs… Now we have bases in KRG and Rojava and control Iraqi+Syrian oil and we have exterminated the Iranian puppet named Daesh 🙂 Thanks to Donald Trump, Iran is getting bankrupt : they have cut salaries of their proxies, Iranian population has enough of this military adventurism that doesn’t… Read more »
