In an interview on CNN Friday, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stated that the Islamic regime would go for an all-out war should the U.S. or Saudi Arabia attack its territory. Zarif also posted on his social media that his country doesn’t want war but are ready to defend their territory.
Zarif said Yemen’s Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, who claimed responsibility for the attack, have stepped up their military capabilities and were capable of conducting a sophisticated operation such as the one that knocked out half of the kingdom’s energy production.
Probed further, however, Zarif was unable to provide proof that it was the Houthis who launched the drones and missiles. “I cannot have any confidence that they did it because we just heard their statement,” said Zarif. “I know that we didn’t do it. I know that the Houthis made a statement that they did it.”
