Targeting the royal court
And in a new surprise, about the targeting of the Saudi Royal Court in Riyadh last month by drones. A leader of an Iran-backed militia in Baghdad said that these aircraft were launched from Iraq.
It is noteworthy that at the end of last January, Riyadh had been subjected to unknown bombing, which sparked widespread controversy at the time.
Days later, a group called the Waad al-Haq Brigades issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack.
The official in the Iranian-backed Iraqi militia told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the attack.
3 aircraft set off towards the royal court
He said that 3 drones were launched from the Iraqi-Saudi border areas by a relatively unknown faction supported by Iran in Iraq.
He also said that the planes crashed in the royal complex in Riyadh, “the royal court,” on January 23rd.
He added that the drones came in parts of Iran and were assembled in Iraq. Then it was launched from there.
In addition, the Iraqi militia leader did not disclose the location of the drones launched along the border.
He also did not provide further details about the group that claimed responsibility for the attack in the name of “Al Waad Al-Haqq Brigades.”
The statements of the militia official thus represent the first admission by an Iranian-backed group that Iraq was the source of the attack on Saudi Arabia.
These statements also indicate the challenge that Baghdad faces in halting attacks by Iranian-backed armed factions in Iraq.
The Associated Press quoted a US official as saying that Washington believes that the January 23 attack on Al-Yamamah Palace was launched from inside Iraq.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not provide further clarifications or disclose how the United States came to this conclusion.
A strike from Iraq poses a challenge to Saudi air defense. Which is now focused on threats from Iran in the northeast, and Yemen in the south.
These drones are small and fly low enough off the ground to avoid being detected by radar.
