SULAIMANI — Iraq denied on Sunday (September 15) that its territory had been used to carry out attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, referring to an incident that knocked out more that half the Kingdom’s output.

A Baghdad government statement denied “media reports that [Iraqi] territory was used to attack Saudi oil installations using drones,” vowing to punish anyone who intended to use Iraq as a launchpad for attacks in the region.
