Last May, a drone attack knocked out oil production at one of Saudi Arabia’s largest oil facilities. Some speculated it was a false flag attack. Reuters now reports it was an Iranian operation, approved at the top. The sources are not named.

The plan by Iranian military leaders to strike Saudi oil installations developed over several months, according to the official close to Iran’s decision making.

Other attendees at some of those meetings included Khamenei’s top military advisor, Yahya Rahim-Safavi, and a deputy of Qasem Soleimani, who heads the Revolutionary Guards’ foreign military and clandestine operations, the three officials said. Rahim-Safavi could not be reached for comment.

Here’s a prime on how Iranian intelligence agencies  conduct such operations.
