India has condemned the drone attacks targeting two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

In a statement yesterday, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar reiterated India's resolve to oppose terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.

Meanwhile, the US has issued satellite images and cited intelligence to back its claim that Iran was behind the drone attacks on Abqaiq, the site of the largest oil processing plant run by the Saudi state oil company, Aramco, and the Khurais oilfield. The attacks were claimed by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

According to the BBC, unnamed US officials told American and international media that the direction and extent of the attacks cast doubt on Houthi involvement.

Iran has denied involvement in the attacks.

The attacks shutting 5 per cent of global crude output caused the biggest surge in oil prices since 1991. The price rose 20 per cent today but fell back later.
