Trump: We'll see if Iran is lying again

Worldwide, US President Donald Trump hinted in a tweet on Monday that Iran could deliberately mislead the international public again after Tehran denied responsibility for drone strikes on Saudi Aramco. "Remember when Iran shot down a drone, saying knowing that it was in its" airspace "when, in fact, it was not close to it. On Saudi Arabia, will we see? ”Wrote the US president.
  • Earlier in June, Iran shot down a US drone that it allegedly violated its airspace.

Saudi Arabia calls Iran a potential culprit for Aramco attacks

A Saudi-led coalition spokesman in Yemen said on Monday that an ongoing investigation into several drone attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities indicated that the weapons used came from Iran, not Yemen. The spokesman said the allegation was based on "preliminary indications", noting that the final outcome had not yet been reached as authorities were continuing to study the origin of the attack.

This latest allegation is in line with Iraqi intelligence, which claimed earlier today that Iranian forces launched drone attacks from bases of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces, also known as the Popular Mobilization. Tehran immediately denied the allegation. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said the US policy of "maximum pressure" had failed and that the country was now turning into a "policy of maximum lies."
