He said there was "no evidence the attacks came from Yemen", though he did not offer any evidence for his theory of an Iranian strike.

The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition continues to adopt and implement necessary measures "to deal with such terrorist threats in order to safeguard national assets, global energy security and ensure stability of world economy", he said.

Yemeni revolutionaries claimed responsibility on Saturday for drone attacks on two major facilities run by Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabia's state-owned oil giant.

The drone strikes on plants in the heartland of Saudi Arabia's oil industry, including the world's biggest petroleum processing facility, were expected to send oil prices up $5-10 per barrel on Monday as tensions rise in the Middle East.

He added that the amount of oil released would be "sufficient to keep the markets well-supplied".

The remarks were created to damage Iran's reputation and provide a pretext for "future actions" against the Islamic republic, he added.

Baghdad, caught between its two main sponsors - Tehran and Washington - also denied any link to the attacks amid media speculation that the drones were launched from Iraq.

"The Saudis do not want an open conflict with Iran", said Dorsey, from the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore.

Saudi interior ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki said there were no casualties in the attacks.

"I would expect a rough day for stocks tomorrow since this attack largely came out of the blue", said Nicholas Colas, Co-founder of DataTrek Research.

US ATTEMPTS to blame Iran for a Houthi attack on Saudi oil installations on Saturday were dismissed by both Iran and the Houthis today.

While its oil wells, scattered over a vast geographical area, may be a hard target, its various oil processing facilities are vulnerable to potential rebel strikes. It said that the bombing took place near a hospital, which led to partially destroying the building.
