TEHRAN, Sept 16 - US President Donald Trump says that the United States is “locked and loaded” for a possible response to the recent Yemeni drone attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities.

US 'locked & loaded' for response after Saudi oil strikeTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Trump took to Twitter on Monday, saying that Washington has a "reason to believe that we know" who is responsible for the attacks carried out against the kingdom’s key oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais on Saturday.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo put the blame for the operation on Iran, claiming, “Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia” and that “there is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen.”

Tehran, however, dismissed the allegation, saying Washington seems to be shifting from a failed campaign of “maximum pressure” to one of “maximum lying” and “deceit” against the Islamic Republic.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet that “US & its clients are stuck in Yemen because of illusion that weapon superiority will lead to military victory.”
